Your selfless help to people in the times of a health crisis is admirable.

Šance onkoláčkům endowment fund

We started our cooperation at the time my son was undergoing cancer treatment. The ReSpimask face masks helped both my son and me during the course of his treatment. I could really see the difference - when using ReSpimask my son was less ill...

 

Reviews from the parents

At the outset of my son´s disease we used a classical medical face mask, but it did not copy the face and my son had troubles breathing with it. In the hospital we got the ReSpimask junior face mask to try. We were very suprised by its shape that is ideal for the child face.

Story of a child with CF through her father’s eyes

When the doctor say to you: "Sir, it is not good at all, your daughter has cystic fibrosis.". You do not ever notice, what she is telling you, but only to your minds, which is going through your head...

...We can protect our lovely daughter with the Respilon mask. These mask have become the integral part of our lives. I can not imagine, that we do not have these mask!...

Nurses from the neonatology department from St Apollinaris Hospital

We were impressed from the Respimask. Perhaps one of our cheerfull colleague, when said: " I have never had the more pleasant thing on my mouth before.", speak for all. 

The breathing is luxury. I am asthmatic, under the mask I can not breathe, I am usually half-suffocated.In your mask I fell comfort. Even, if I run up the stairs on the way to the laboratory, I don't have to stop for breathing. The breathability and lightness of the material pleasantly surprised everyone.

Patient with COPD

I am a patient with COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) and I have the need to have the polluted air I breath in filtrated.More than one year ago I was looking for a company which manufactures respiratory protective equipment, re-usable with nanotechnology ideally. I have addressed 3 companies, one directly said no, I have communicated several times with the second one but at the end it was also for nothing.

There was no interest in production for the sick at this time. Production is demanding to produce especially due to complex and expensive testing and certification. However,  Ing. Jana Zimová from the Respilon listened to me immediately and was willing to discuss the problems with breathing and needs of patients.
