As the obtained singlet oxygen concentration in the air using the Z5 is low and its lifetime is relatively short, the oxidative conditions obtained are mild enough to be used for medical, dental and cosmetic treatments, such as cancer, oral lesions, eye diseases, psoriasis, acne and so on.
Currently, the common method utilizing singlet oxygen used for these applications is photodynamic treatment (PDT), which requires the application of photosensitizers followed by irradiation. A side effect of PDT is that the skin becomes highly sensitive to light.
This will be avoided using the Z5.
Oxygen therapy- energy deficiency
Oxygen is essential to life as it is directly involved in the production of energy required for all the body's functions. Energy in the body is produced in cellular breathing process where ATP is created.
ATP is the body's main energy currency, used to supply energy for many enzymatic processes within the cells, thus ensuring the continual function of the body and its maintenance. The more ATP is produced, the faster a tissue grows and heals, neuron communication is faster which leads to clearer and sharper mind, and the immune system reaction gets more robust and effective.
To ensure production of as much ATP as possible, a sufficient supply of oxygen to the cells needs to be maintained. Traditionally, oxygen therapy is done by breathing air with high oxygen concentration.Alternatively, breathing singlet oxygen-enriched atmospheric air has been shown to also be effective, without the need for expensive and dangerous oxygen tanks
Singlet oxygen has been shown to be beneficial for people with breathing disorders such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) asthma, emphysema and so on.
Energizing singlet-oxygen enriched air
The body uses oxygen for the production of energy needed for many cellular functions. As singlet oxygen is more reactive, its utilization by the body is more effective.
Breathing singlet-oxygen enriched air produced by Z5 makes one feel more energetic and refreshed. One’s mind is more alert and the thought process becomes faster and sharper.
Singlet oxygen treatment has been shown to be beneficial for people with energy deficiency disorders, such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis and so on.
Singlet oxygen has been shown to have anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal effects. Singlet oxygen is one of reactive oxygen species (ROS) used by immune cells to battle foreign substances and organisms.
The Z5 can be installed in air vents and air conditioners for air purification and to prevent fouling of the air filters and tubing.
The Z5 device can also be used for sterilization of medical instruments, packaged food, medications, waste and water treatment and so on.
