Welcome your patients to the allergen-free sleep zone
99.5% clean air while sleeping enables your patient’s airways to rest and recuperate while they sleep.
Airsonett® Air4 uses the patented technology TLA (Temperature controlled Laminar Airflow) to focus a gentle flow of filtered, clean air towards the breathing zone. The filtered, clean air is slightly cooled before it is released from the device, so that it will gently descend by gravity and ‘push’ away the particle and allergen rich air from the breathing zone.
Airsonett TLA has undergone rigorous clinical trials over a number of years. You can read more about research performed on Airsonett TLA. See the Clinical Evidence.
The treatment is non-invasive and non-pharmacological. No treatment-related adverse effects have been identified.
Since Airsonett Air4 is used in the home the need for medical appointments or scheduled hospital visits is lower than for many other treatments. In line with current needs and expectations, there are a number of Health Economics calculations performed with Airsonett as a basis. You can find the most recent study here.
Airsonett Air4 can either be purchased or rented with a fixed monthly fee. Both options gives the user a low financial risk.
Help your patients help themselves to a better quality of life. Who is the Airsonett Air4 right for?
Airsonett Air4 is for use in patients with severe allergic asthma who, in spite of taking asthma medication, still have poorly controlled asthma. Treatment with Airsonett TLA has been shown to be most suitable for patients with the following clinical profile: Poorly controlled (ACT≤18) atopic asthma despite high treatment intensity (GINA 4). Sensitisation to ≥ 1 perennial indoor aeroallergen (including House Dust Mite, domestic pet or fungi) to which they are likely to be exposed to, demonstrated by a positive skin prick test (weal diameter ≥ 3mm).
Other allergy induced diseases than asthma, such as rhinitis and eczema, can also be triggered by airborne allergens and other particles (irritants). Minimizing airborne irritants from the breathing zone may therefore alleviate symptoms of these diseases. Conventional air purifiers have not demonstrated clinical effect on asthmatics and patients with other allergen induced diseases.
How the Airsonett Air4 works
Airsonett Air4 is based on the Temperature controlled Laminar Airflow (TLA) technology. The air from the room enters the Air4 and passes a filter that captures allergens and other particles. The filtered air is cooled to slightly below the ambient room temperature and is supplied with a low velocity from the air shower. The slightly cooled air creates a zone of allergen-free air in the breathing zone.
Conventional air purifiers have not demonstrated clinical effect on asthmatics and patients with other allergen induced diseases.
The drastic reduction in night-time allergen and particle exposure in the breathing zone created by Airsonett Air4 is the main reason for Airsonett’s success in an area where so many other domestic allergen avoidance measures have failed.
Dust, allergens and particles
99.5% clean air
Here’s how it works
While at rest in bed, your mouth and nose are in close contact with pillows, mattresses and duvets that can contain large amounts of irritating particles and allergens such as house dust mites and pet dander. During sleep your body causes an upward air flow, concentrating these airborne particles and allergens to the breathing zone.
The Airsonett Air4 delivers filtered and slightly cooled air that descends towards the breathing zone in a laminar manner. The clean laminar airflow counteracts the allergen-rich body convection flow.
With the Airsonett Air4 placed next to the bed and used every night at least 99.5% of particles are blocked from your breathing zone all through your sleep. This allows your airways and the immune system to rest and recuperate overnight.

Published in Thorax (2012)
”…we have demonstrated that nocturnal control of aeroallergen exposure…can improve quality of life and reduce airway inflammation in adults and children with atopic asthma, without significant adverse effects.”
What types of particles does the filter get rid of?
Studies show that Airsonett TLA reduces all particles (both ≥0.5μm and <0.1μm) in the breathing zone by more than 1,000 times compared with no intervention.
Can Airsonett TLA have an effect on eczema and in that case how can that be when the clean air only reach the breathing zone / face?
Other allergy induced diseases than asthma, such as rhinitis and eczema, can also be triggered by airborne allergens and other particles (irritants). Minimizing airborne irritants from the breathing zone may therefore alleviate symptoms of these diseases.
For how long should a patient be treated?
Airsonett TLA should be used continuously every night.
How can it have an effect during daytime when it is only used during night time?
Nocturnal exposures have a significant impact on inflammation and symptoms in asthma. This may be a consequence of circadian changes in autonomic function, steroid hormones and immune responsiveness. Studies have shown that daytime symptoms and activities are significantly improved from nocturnal Airsonett use.
Is the Airsonett Air4 certified as medical electrical equipment?
We manufacture to the highest EU regulations ISO 60601-1. Airsonett has been tested and found to be in conformity with regulation IEC/EN 60601-1 for Medical electrical equipment. Airsonett has full product liability insurance for the device.
