Medical Negative Ion Generator
Ionisers produce similar health benefits to those found in nature. A rainforest, waterfall, ocean waves breaking and high altitudes.
After four years in development, the revolutionary ELANRA AIR has been released as the world’s most advanced personal Ioniser. Fully portable, this compact ‘hands free’ medical device is worn comfortably around the neck providing you with unrestricted freedom and therapeutic benefit at work, school or home, while travelling, shopping or driving.
Designed specifically for aircraft use and in-flight travel, for use in intensive care and general hospital wards, and for study and concentration, the ELANRA AIR features nine easily programmed individual settings including three output levels and three different frequencies - from stimulating your immune system (4Hz), to improved sleep and concentration (10Hz), to increased energy and vitality (25Hz).
A choice of black or white, ELANRA AIR is fully rechargeable; an international charger kit with universal adaptors is included with your purchase.
For people on the go, ELANRA AIR provides you with the recognised benefits of nature’s own negative ions of oxygen anywhere, anytime.
The ELANRA Medical Ioniser is the only ioniser in the World today that produces small ingestible negative ions of oxygen. It is therefore impossible to compare ELANRA with the other ionisers, as other ionisers do not produce small ingestible ions.
Technical Information on Negative Ions
The Air We Breathe. Understanding Air Ions
Ions are formed when an electron is detached from a neutral molecule (or atom). The molecule losing an electron becomes a positive ion and the molecule gaining an electron becomes a negative ion.
The earth itself produces negative ions. Our sun's energy is generated by the chain reaction of Hydrogen being converted into Helium, then back again. This process produces the heat that sustains life on Earth, but also showers our planet with positive ions of Hydrogen as a by-product.
The forces of nature produce both negative and positive ions in abundance (a ratio of five positive to four negative ions). High levels of negative air ions are created by lightning, rolling surf, cosmic rays, waterfalls and UV light. Today's lifestyle destroys our natural environment, depleting negative oxygen ions and causing detrimental effects to all living creatures.
Are Negative Ions the Same Size?
No, there are small, medium and large negative ions. Small (ingestible) negative ions are highly mobile and are biologically active.
Medium to large negative ions are sluggish and slow moving and merely clean the air. The following diagram illustrates the principle of small air ion production.
These molecule groups are called small ions or clusters. They can also join up with larger neutral particles and form "small medium ions", "large medium ions", "large ions" or "ultra large ions" depending on particle size.
However, it is essentially only the small ions which are biologically active.
These possess an electrical mobility which is greater than 1 cm²/ Vs.
The electrical mobility specifies the average velocity of an ion in an electric field. This is approx. 1.9 cm²/ Vs for negative small ions and approx. 1.4 cm²/ Vs for positive small ions. In an electric field with a field strength of 1 V/ cm, small ions thus reach a velocity of 1.9 cm²/ s and 1.4 cm²/ s respectively.
Ions and our Health
In certain situations - near waterfalls, where the sea breaks onto rocks, in pine forests, mountain areas and following lightning storms, you may notice you feel invigorated and refreshed, because you've been breathing air with a high content of small negative ions of oxygen.
"Positive ions are the witches that ride dry winds, inhabit modern buildings, multiply in the toxic canyons of the cities, lurk in our homes and bottle up in closed motor cars."
The so-called 'witch's winds' are winds called the Foehn in Switzerland, Sharav in the Middle East, the Mistral in France, the Sirocco in Italy, California's Santa Ana, Sydney and Brisbane's Westerlies, Melbourne's Northerlies, Perth's Easterlies and Adelaide's Northerlies - all have long been traditionally blamed for causing ill health and accidents.
Negative Ions in Nature
Without fresh air, the average human being would only last three minutes, and we must breathe 10,000 litres each day to survive. Why then, do we continue to take this vital life support system for granted and vaguely assume that all air is the same?
The difference between fresh air in an open natural environment and that found in stuffy, polluted buildings and vehicles is not merely academic. We physically experience the difference, yet may find it difficult to qualify this difference. We simply know that inhaling fresh air "feels good".
Even in pleasant climates like that found on much of Australia's coastline, we relentlessly interfere with nature, poisoning our environment with pollutants of various types - aerosol sprays, chemical fumes, synthetic fibres, air conditioning systems and tobacco smoke - to name just a few.
Ancient textbooks on yoga suggest that a student wishing to perfect his body and mind through breathing exercises should practise near a waterfall, in a cave or, best of all, in a cave under a waterfall. The yoga masters may not have known about negative ions, but they were familiar with their beneficial effects.
We experience certain environments as invigorating due to the abundance of small (ingestible) negative ions of oxygen in the air. Such environments include waterfalls, pine forests or near the seashore where waves break on the rocks. Alpine areas more than 5,000 feet above sea level also have an enriched negative ion atmosphere which explains the feeling of well-being.
Note how you feel before a storm when the air is charged with positive ions. The still, heavy atmosphere is oppressive, often causing tempers to fray. After the storm the air is charged with negative ions, the birds begin to sing and you feel alive. Inhaling this air, charged with small ingestible oxygen ions, is the key to that 'recharged' feeling.
The ELANRA produces the same 'recharged' feeling.
Positive ions and pollution
Medical research has found that inhaling too many positive ions can be harmful. When breathed into your lungs, positive ions are taken into your bloodstream, where they can trigger various harmful responses such as the release of excess serotonin and histamine.
So if you suspect the air in your office or home is undermining your well-being, you're probably right. Several factors could be at work, including:
This chart shows the approximate level of negative ions in various environments.
The ion concentration depends on the geographical, geological, metrological and time conditions in each case.

For over 100 years humankind has progressively moved away from natural living. Implementation of all things artificial and unnatural has grown dramatically since WWII. There has been a significant increase in the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and other poisons, causing pollution of our internal and external environment.
Medicine, technology and chemistry now rely on synthetic drugs, sophisticated operations and hi-tech diagnostic methods. Yet, although we possess these many 'miracles' of technology, our bodies, our society and our planet are failing to cope.
We believe you should do whatever possible to restore your body's natural balance, and assist all parts of your body to function properly. Eating healthy food, drinking filtered water and exercising are some of the things you can do to help restore your body's natural balance.
However, of major significance to your health is the air you breathe.
