Summary:Allergies are among the most common chronic conditions worldwide. The rise in the prevalence of allergic diseases has continued in the industrialized world for more than 50 years. WHO predicts that in two years, 50% of Europeans will be allergic. Dust mites are the most common trigger of year-round allergies and asthma. Around 10 million dust mites are found in the average bed which is a reservoir of their food, human skin cells. Anti-dust mite bedding nanoSPACE with nanofiber membrane inside is the first preventive allergy protection with 100 % efficiency. It prevents dust-mites and their allergens from gathering in the bed. You can imagine the nanofiber layer as a net with holes of the size 80 nm only. Unlike the dimensions of the dust mites are about 420000 nm, the allergen is 1000 nm big, bacteria 100-10000 nm, virus about 100 nm and scabies 300000 nm. Thus, dust mites and their allergens have no chance to pass through the fabric. Nanofibre bedding is a perfect solution for those who suffer from allergies, asthma and immunodeficiency disorders. Nanofiber barrier bedding has the potential to become a new general bedding standard.
