Dr. Scott Augustine wants to breathe fresh air into allergy treatment. More specifically, a bubble of fresh air.
Augustine, a medical device inventor, is raising $5 million to back PureZone Technologies. The Eden Prairie, Minn., start-up is developing a pillow-based air filtration system that creates a bubble of fresh air around allergy patients while they sleep.
Although PureZone’s system doesn’t require approval from the Food and Drug Administration, the company sponsored a clinical study last year that yielded promising results.
