Project summary

Extending the patented CleanSpace Technology to develop a respirator to meet the specific needs of healthcare workers.

What is the issue?

AFtec Australia specialises in innovative and quality respiratory protection device design and manufacturing.

Founded by a world class medical device engineering team with a vision to make respiratory protection wearable and easy to use. The team has previously designed medical products from concept to manufacturing that are currently being used by millions of people around the world. Their expertise is the reason our products (CleanSpace™ Respirators) are safe, robust and high performing even in the harshest environments. These award winning respirators are used by companies all around the world from mine sites in the Pilbara to manufacturers and specialists in transportation, infrastructure and energy. Sold in over 20 countries around the world, CleanSpace™ deliver significant safety and compliance benefits over traditional masks.

There is an opportunity to extend the patented CleanSpace Technology to develop a respirator to meet the specific needs of healthcare workers. The device will be tested and used for protection of healthcare workers at high risk of airborne infectious disease (ie Ebola, Viral Haemorrhagic Fever, Tuberculosis). In conjunction with world class researchers in NSW in the areas of respiratory protection and infectious disease, PAFtec plans to clinically evaluate the performance and staff acceptance of the CleanSpace PAPR with full face mask in hospital and remote field operations.

CleanSpace™ Respirators are the world’s smallest and lightest powered respirators and a game changer for respiratory protection. CleanSpace™ Respirators are certified to the high P3 protection (99.98% filtration efficiency for particles 0.3 micron and above) have patented, breath-responsive algorithm and a powerful, efficient micro-turbine motor which permits the airflow to be adjusted in situ to match the wearer’s breathing. The powered airflow offers both protection and comfort for long periods (up to 8 hours) – ideal for primary healthcare, screening, triage or treatment by first response in the field operations where traditional powered masks fail.

Every CleanSpace™ respirator is individually tested for quality and performance in our facility in NSW, Australia. The Company’s Quality Management System is accredited to the globally recognised ISO 9001 standard. An important element of using a CleanSpace respirator is our training. PAFtec was one of the first respirator manufacturers to develop an online training system with compliance tool enabling rapid high volume deployment in remote locations. The Training Program has been developed with our customers’ in mind and is augmented by our product specialists and distribution partners.
