GasMedic™ Flatulence Filter
- Product Overview
The GasMedicTM flatulence filter is a high performance air filter
designed to look and feel like a conventional seat cushion. It accommodates
a sound muffling acoustical foam element and a proprietary blend
of activated carbon material. The filter cushions function as a
powerful passive control device to effectively neutralize the sound
and odor associated with flatulence.
The GasMedic flatulence filter is designed to eliminate
the inherent conflict between someone with intestinal gas and the
people within his or her breathing zone. Maximum filtration control,
within the framework of applied ergonomics, has been developed as
a response to broad and repetitive field requirements. The GasMedic
flatulence filter’s comprehensive “source capture”
engineering design provides a unique solution to the problem of
accidental flatulence incidents in a social setting.
GasMedic flatulence filters by Dairiair®,LLC are designed as a discrete
and effective solution to the environmental and social problems
associated with flatulence. It is a scientific fact that an average
individual passes intestinal gas into the environment 14 times per
day. Some individuals produce these flatulence outbursts on a more
frequent basis. Regardless, should a flatulence outburst occur when
the person responsible is in a stationary sitting position, the
result can be embarrassing for the person dispelling gas and unpleasant
for those nearby. While the GasMedic flatulence filter does not
address the sufferer’s underlying condition, it does mitigate
its social and environmental effects by muffling the sound and neutralizing
the odors of each flatulence outburst for most end-users. Best of
all, it provides this dual control in a manner that is totally discrete.
If you suffer from a mild or chronic form of intestinal gas, we
have a flatulence filter that’s right for you – and
the people close to you.
How It Works
There is little difference between the environmental challenge posed
by excess flatulence and other common odor challenges like sewage
treatment plants or commercial kitchens. All odors are made up of
gas molecules. The best way to control them is to capture them at
their source and then neutralize them before they have a chance
to enter and degrade local ambient air. Essentially this is how
the GasMedic flatulence filter system works. When the end-user is
seated on the filter cushion, each outburst is muffled and diffused
by the cushion’s internal acoustical foam element. The odor-laden
discharge is then forced through a proprietary blend of activated
carbon material, which strips away the odor-causing gas molecules.
Each GasMedic Classic flatulence filter seat cushion has a total
carbon surface area roughly equivalent to that of five football
fields (288,000 ft2). When the gas exits the GasMedic flatulence
filter, the majority of the telltale odor is removed.
Where To Use
The GasMedic flatulence filter is intentionally designed to fit
in a wide range of different operating environments without drawing
undo attention to it. First, the filter cushion is undistinguishable
from conventional padded seat cushions – both in appearance
and feel. For this reason, the GasMedic flatulence filter can be
used virtually anywhere one can comfortably take a seat –
in the car, office, home etc. Second, the cushion’s thin profile
and light weight make it extremely portable. It can be discretely
used in restaurants, classrooms, boardrooms, medical waiting rooms,
sports arenas, airplanes – in fact, in any social setting
where the cushion’s invisible flatulence control capabilities
provide a welcome measure of personal and environmental protection.
So, where does the GasMedic flatulence filter fit?
Virtually anywhere you sit!
When To Use
Society frowns upon certain private acts performed in public, like
the passing of intestinal gas. The general public generally treats
other natural human outbursts, like sudden laughter or an unexpected
sneeze, with a much more forgiving reaction. This is due, in part,
to the fact that flatulence outbursts typically produce an immediate
surge in localized noxious odors. In effect, the people who are
directly exposed to a flatulence outburst become unwitting air filters.
While the GasMedic flatulence filter does not reduce the number
of flatulence outbursts its user produces, it does insert several
degrees of separation between the person committing the act and
the people within his or her immediate vicinity. The degree of separation
it creates is sufficient to render each flatulence outburst environmentally
and socially acceptable for most end-users.
Considering the alternative, the GasMedic flatulence
filter applies for all situations in which you would rather be safe….
