Atlanta Healthcare together with AirVisual has launched the World’s Smartest Air Quality Monitor, the Node, to the Indian market. The Node identifies invisible airborne threats such as PM2.5 and CO2 to help people achieve a healthier living environment.
Atlanta HealthcareTM, a pioneer of air quality management in India, in partnership with AirVisual have announced the launch of the Node, a portable air quality monitor that displays fine particulate matter (PM2.5) and carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations on a 5-inch LED screen and via smartphone. This move will help strengthen Atlanta Healthcare’s presence in the air purification and quality management space (adding to its current portfolio of air purifiers and military grade N99 pollution Cambridge masks) and is another step towards Atlanta Healthcare’s vision of fighting air pollution in India.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Vibhor Jain, CEO, Atlanta Healthcare shared, “The first step to improving air quality is to be able to monitor and detect the pollutants in the air. Aligned with our vision to bring the best in class innovation to customers in helping them breathe pure air we are excited to announce our association with AirVisual to bring the world’s smartest Air Quality Monitor, the Node to India. In India, the biggest challenge today is the lack of awareness amongst customers on what they breathe and the impact of it on their health. With Atlanta Healthcare Airvisual Node, customers would be aware of what they breathe and take steps towards combating air pollution. Our vision is to create a network of Nodes across the country to provide accurate monitoring and actionable advice to the public to protect their health and combat air pollution threats.”
Speaking at the launch, Yann Boquillod, founder of AirVisual acknowledged that “India is facing a major environmental crisis with air quality affecting the health of hundreds of millions of people”. In this situation, he emphasised “it is crucial to grow people’s awareness about air pollution levels, so that people know how to protect themselves and their families, and the pollution problem can be addressed. The Atlanta Healthcare AirVisual Node provides a data-driven solution to empower people with knowledge of their surroundings and enable them to breathe the healthiest air possible.”
The Atlanta Healthcare AirVisual Node is an “all in one” device that not only monitors the air in its surroundings, but also compares indoor with outdoor air quality and gives recommendations to create a healthier and more productive environment.
Placed indoors, the Node gives tailored recommendations to optimise a healthy indoor environment, such as alerting one to open windows and ventilate when CO2 builds up indoors, run an air purifier when indoor PM2.5 is high, or advising when to avoid exercising outside.
Placed outdoors, Node can become a public outdoor air monitoring station, sharing its air quality data with a global network to hugely benefit its local community and beyond.
The Atlanta Healthcare AirVisual Node also offers an air pollution forecast, allowing users to plan their outdoor activities for the healthiest times possible.
Atlanta Healthcare AirVisual Node will provide customers with enhanced features, including:
- Health Recommendations: to lower your health risk and improve well-being.
- Advanced Analytics: Detailed figures on key pollutants and their evolution over time.
- Air Pollution Forecast: allow you to plan your activities for the healthiest times possible
The Node’s data can be tracked on-the-go using the AirVisual air pollution app or website, and further family and friends can also be invited to follow it.
The AirVisual app reports air quality readings and forecasts for 10,000+ locations around the world. In India, the app reports pollution levels and forecasts for more than 100 points across the country.
The Atlanta Healthcare AirVisual Node can be used to track pollution in both indoor & outdoor environments and is of particular relevance in spaces where people congregate like schools, gym, hospitals, hotels, offices, home, industries etc.
