Inspired by: I work with light as a profession, in wavelengths in the Near Infrared range for the management of chronic pain, msk injuries and other conditions that are highly reactive and receptive to infrared light stimulation, known as the science of photobiomodulation. My interest in and work with light lead me to the idea for this type of anti-viral device to improve upon the capabilities of ordinary masks for everyday citizens to better protect themselves during this pandemic. A recently published article on the safety and efficacy of certain wavelengths of UVC light, and then the Covid-19 pandemic, provided the push I needed to move forward with this idea that I have had for several years. The research article can be found here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5552051/pdf/nihms890587.pdf
