This ‘Nosy’ Device Filters Over 90% of the Air You Breathe and Is Comfortable to Wear for 8-12 Hours

Founder and CEO of Nosy, Carina Cunha, partnered with former Dyson Engineers at Aetha Designs to develop Nosy, a wearable air filter for your nose (not meant to replace an N95 respirator) that filters over 90% of the air you breathe, but that you can comfortably wear for 8-12 hours.

Nosy increases protection from air pollution and allergens by filtering indoor/outdoor pollution for extended periods of time. Equipped with Activated Carbon and HEPA filters, Nosy breaks down toxic gases from fossil fuel emissions and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and also protects you from pollen, dust, lint, mold spores, smoke, pet hair, etc.



Overall, healthy people mostly breathe through their nose because it’s the only organ in our bodies designed to filter and humidify the air, Nosy points out. While you may breathe in small amounts of unfiltered air through your mouth, “this tradeoff is worth it for day-long protection against air pollution.”
