After specialized ventilators for hospitals in more than 20 countries around the world, Vietnamese-Japanese inventor Mr. Tran Ngoc Phuc has just launched the first two-way air filter technology mask in Vietnam.
Metran Japan – a Japanese company with more than 35 years of experience in manufacturing special respiratory medical devices – announced that it has successfully developed the O-Pro smart mask.
Metran was founded by Mr. Tran Ngoc Phuc, long known as a Vietnamese-Japanese expert who invented the MV20 ventilator for Covid-19 patients, which is currently being used in 8 countries around the world. there is Vietnam.

In addition, the sharp decline in air quality has also made masks a useful product for humans, attracting the attention of medical device manufacturers around the world.
However, current masks cause limitations in breathing ability when active, as well as reduce aesthetics in daily life and communication.

The technology mask can be used comfortably in hot weather, does not cause suffocation, is convenient for gas exchange activities taking place in the lungs as well as ensures fashion.
Integrated with a HEPA H-13 filter and an antibacterial photocatalyst lamp, the O-Pro is tested by the Technology Institution of Industrial Safety to filter up to 99.9% of dust. fine particles smaller than 2.5 microns (PM 2.5), bacteria, viruses, and harmful particles present in the air.
With an optimally secure, self-contained two-way air filtration system, the O-Pro has three levels of adjustment that can deliver more than 100 liters of air per minute and up to 10 hours of use at a time.
The mask of the O-Pro mask is also made of medical-grade silicone, which is safe for the skin and helps users communicate or share emotions easily even when wearing a mask.
“We originally planned to launch products in the EU and US markets, but as a Vietnamese, I want to prioritize serving my homeland first,” said inventor Tran Ngoc Phuc.
He shared that Metran planned to provide equipment to serve people and frontline doctors during the recent peak of the epidemic, but the product launch was slower than expected due to difficulties in component supply. .
