AernoviR Purification System

As the Covid-19 pandemic swept the country, facilities all over started to consider additional safety measures, such as added sanitization measures and air purification systems. Fitness Experience is pleased to announce that we have now partnered with SmartAir Solutions the Canadian distributor of AernoviR Air Purification systems, to bring you the highest quality air purification system to  your fitness facility. 

Why Is It Important To Include An Air Purifier In Your Facility?

Wherever there are plenty of people exercising at the same time, pathogens in the ambient air, on exercise equipment and surfaces all pose a major risk of infection. By breathing heavily, fitness fanatics could spread viruses, germs and bacteria across their entire exercise area. Scientific studies have verified that Covid-19 survives in the form of airborne particles for several hours. An AernoviR air purifier can help stop the spread of viruses in your fitness facility through medical grade plasma air purification.

Clean Air And Health With AernoviR

The outbreak and global spread of the coronavirus and the findings relating to transmission paths have caused us to pay more attention to the topic of ambient air and keeping it clean. It was initially assumed that Covid-19 was transmitted in the same way as the common cold, through contact infections. But as the epidemic has progressed, it has become clear that the disease is mainly transmitted through airborne aerosols, leaving the virus to continue moving through the ambient air even hours later.  The greater the concentration of viruses and germs in the air, the higher the viral and bacterial load on surfaces. A comprehensive approach to hygiene should therefore always include air disinfection. The innovative AernoviR high-performance air purifier provides clean air in enclosed spaces.

The AernoviR high-performance air purifier offers:

  • Safe and reliable disinfection of the air (effectiveness tested)
  • Protection against viruses, germs, bacteria and allergens
  • Reduced airborne and surface contamination
  • Compact dimensions and mobility (socket connection)
  • Low operating costs
  • Flexible operation
  • A key component of every hygiene and prevention plan



Consumer Confidence In Indoor Spaces Is Critical for A Return To Normal Activity. High-Performance Air Purifiers Can Help Customers Feel Safe In Your Facility

Results of a recent survey show 50% of the population avoid indoor spaces due to coronavirus.

The online survey of 2089 people done in the fall of 2020 was done by YouGov,   a British international Internet-based market research and data analytics firm, headquartered in the UK, with operations in Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific.  The survey was commissioned by Schwa-Medico, a German medical device manufacturer.

The majority of those surveyed are concerned about airborne transmission in locations such as public transport (88%), medical waiting rooms (84%), offices (84%), and hotels, restaurants and conference centers (81%). 

More than a third (35%) said the use of a medically certified air-purification system – which keeps air and surfaces free of viruses, germs, bacteria and allergens – would make them feel safer, while 37% said it would ‘possibly’ make them feel safer.

Overall, a system of this kind would encourage more than half of those questioned to return to spaces and locations they are currently avoiding because of the pandemic.

  • 35% in the survey indicated that the use of a medically certified air-purification system would make them feel safer.
  • 37% in the survey indicated it would ‘possibly’ make them feel safer.

Air Purification – An Integral Part Of Any Hygiene Strategy

In the past, when air quality has been discussed, it was generally in terms of the outdoor environment, with little focus on the situation in enclosed spaces.

Considering that, today, the average Canadian spends 94% of their time indoors* in the winter months, this is highly surprising, especially given that air pollution can be up to five times higher indoors than out.


Now, the emergence of the Coronavirus and the subsequent increase in our knowledge about transmission routes have pushed the issue of indoor air quality to the top of the agenda.  

“An integrated hygiene concept should always include air disinfection to filter out aerosols, i.e. the fine particles that remain suspended in the air for several hours. The greater the concentration of viruses and germs in the air, the higher the surface load,” says Dr Roger Pierenkemper, Managing Director of Schwa-Medico

“Air purification can help save lives where there is the potential for someone with a communicable disease to come into contact with members of an at-risk group,” adds Dr Pierenkemper.

Professional Air Purifier That Uses Plasma Technology

AernoviR is a purifying system developed by Schwa Medico on 2011.   It is a high-performance air purifier that considerably reduces the concentration of viruses, germs, bacteria and allergens in indoor air and on surfaces. The AernoviR, a class 1 medical device ‘Made in Germany’, works effectively thanks to a comprehensive system of high-quality filtration and three optimally coordinated technologies.

First, a high-performance HEPA filter removes solids, fine particles, fats/lubricants and tobacco smoke from the air, followed by plasma air disinfection that is used to kill germs and deactivate viruses. Finally, explains Dr Pierenkemper, the active carbon filter traps unoxidized molecules and converts ozone into oxygen.
