HELP US DO OUR PART

 

THE MASK SHORTAGE

There is a widespread shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) for frontline healthcare professionals. Doctors and nurses are being forced to treat patients without adequate equipment, sometimes having to re-use their equipment, putting them and their patients in further danger.

This is a critical problem that we need to solve immediately with wartime urgency.

 

HERE'S WHAT WE'RE DOING

Our team in Los Angeles is working tirelessly to produce thousands of washable filter face masks, which are being donated to first-responders, healthcare professionals, government institution workers and law enforcement officers working on the frontlines against the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a wellness technology company, our mission has always been to improve health, prevent injury, and supplement performance.

Amidst this pandemic virulence, we reaffirm our dedication to our mission of saving lives and providing protective gear to healthcare professionals at risk.


BUY A MASK,
GIVE A MASK

 

We’re throwing all we have into this effort out of pocket to further the production & donation of masks to first-responders, healthcare professionals, government institution workers and law enforcement officers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. But we can always use more help.

Here’s where you come in.

You can help by purchasing a mask. For every mask you purchase, we will donate a mask to a frontline professional in need.

HOW THEY ARE MADE

Made locally in Southern California, our multi-layered, washable filter face masks are reusable and made with a permanent non-woven Polypropylene Filter.

As unemployment rates skyrocket, we are building and supporting our local community by creating jobs and increasing our production output to produce as many masks as possible.

WHAT IS COVID-19?

Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from interaction between people.

To date, it has infected 5,638,000 people globally and has resulted in over 349,300 deaths.*

* Data as of 05/26/20

  • H O W   I T   S P R E A D S

  • H O W   T O   P R E P A R E

According to the CDC, most people who contract COVID-19 will have mild symptoms, including fever, cough and shortness of breath. In more serious cases, medical attention may be required with symptoms including:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
  • Sudden confusion and unresponsiveness
  • Bluish lips or face

COVID-19 can be spread through person to person interaction; particularly if there is close contact, (within 6 feet), with someone who is infected, even if they show no symptoms.

Respiratory droplets spread the virus through coughs and sneezes, and these can land on surfaces, spreading the virus when someone else touches the contaminated surface then touches their nose, mouth or eyes.

For this reason, social distancing per CDC guidelines is vital, as well as washing hands and being careful to disinfect surfaces in and out of the home when possible.

The highest risk groups are those over aged 60, and patients with pre-existing conditions. So far data shows that younger adults are less affected, although they must take the same precautions as higher risk groups in case they may be unknowingly susceptible, as well as to prevent spreading the virus to those that are.

Everyone has the potential to spread the virus to someone more vulnerable than themselves, so every person is equally responsible, regardless of their own risk factors.

Practice social distancing and avoid crowded areas.

Wash your hands often, especially after you have been in a public place. Use soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.

Sanitize “high traffic” surfaces like shopping cart handles, your car door handle and steering wheel, surfaces in your home and bathrooms.

Notify your doctor right away if you are experiencing symptoms.
