Blueair has initiated cooperation with the Swedish Cross-Country national team for at least two years. In a first step, we will help the national team skiers by providing state of the art air purifiers for their indoor environments both during the training camp and the WC. The reason? So the athletes can breathe the cleanest indoor air possible to optimise their health and feel in the best condition possible in the build up and during the competitions.
“ This is a good and important collaboration for us. From a medical perspective, it is of great benefit as clean air, free of unhealthy airborne particles can be an important component for skiers' recovery while the risk of contracting infections is likely to decrease, says the national ski team's chief physician Per "Pliggen" Andersson. "
In order for the air purifiers to have the best possible effect, it is intended that they should be set up in spaces where the athletes spend the most time indoors, such as in the bedrooms and in the meeting rooms.
When the team returns home after the World Championship, Blueair will install air purifiers in the skiers’ homes to ensure that they have continued access to clean, healthy air, free from common household pollutants such as viruses, bacteria, dust, mold, soot, smoke and chemicals from textiles and cleaning agent
This means that the indoor air contains lots of particles even if you are in a small village in Västerbotten, such as Saxnäs. Pollutants found in the indoor air can make it more difficult for irritated trachea to recover after working hard in cold conditions. In addition, indoor air pollution also impact sleep quality and increase the risk of contracting infections.
