First Defense Nasal Screen Corporation (FDNS) Announced an Exclusive Joint Venture with Filter Your Life Healthcare to distribute its Nasal Filters in India

  • The US Company the “First Defense Nasal Screen Corporation” (FDNS) Announced an Exclusive Joint Venture with “Filter Your Life Healthcare Private Limited” an Indian company registered with ROC India.
  • Granting Exclusive Distribution Rights of Its Life Changing Product “First Defense Nasal Screens” Throughout all of India, Bringing Much Needed Relief to the Billions of People that Suffer from the Major Air Quality Problems Faced Daily across India and the rest of the world.
  • In addition FDNS also added a warning to any and all companies present and future that may be currently trying or in the future try to knock off their product in India or any other part of the world.  Any violation of Patents or Pending Patents owned by FDNS or it’s affiliated Companies will not be accepted or tolerated.

Joseph Moore, President and CEO of the “First Defense Nasal Screen Corporation” (a United Stated Corporation registered in Florida) recently announced that his life changing product that is sweeping the globe “First Defense Nasal Screens” the external Nasal Filter, is now available throughout India through their new partner and Indian company ”Filter Your Life Healthcare Private Limited” (https://www.filteryourlife.in/)

Mr. Moore also confirmed that “Filter Your Life Healthcare Private Limited” is the only company that is currently allowed to distribute his Nasal Filters in any and all of India. He was quoted as saying, “They are the only authorized distributor in India. We are aware of a few other companies making false claims that they invented it and or have rights to use and sell our technology. One has gone as far as stating that they invented it through IIT Delhi in India, yet we have emails from them to a manufacturer showing our original patent prints and videos with a request for manufacturing. This will not be tolerated and we will do everything in our means to make sure it doesn’t. I cannot believe they even credited the University in their claim and press release opening liability to and from the University itself.”

With patents already issued in over 50 countries since 2006 throughout most all of Asia including Japan and China, and the US, Canada and all of Europe and with more pending, including in India under application number 61/482,275 which was filed on the 4th of May 2011 under PCT/US2012/035048 and with a law firm like Holland and Knight as their counsel Mr. Moore made it very clear they will not tolerate any violations and are prepared to defend their product and product rights to protect the consumers worldwide so they know they are buying the real product and not some copy that doesn’t work or work as well.

“The statistics are staggering,” Moore continues, in “The Economist, it was reported that in India respiratory ailments soared fourfold between 2008 and 2015 and the number of early deaths caused by toxic air are expected to exceed 600,000 a year.”

Mr. Moore was almost laughed off the stage while presenting his nasal screen product on the TV show, “Shark Tank” in (2011) but was vindicated when the Sharks offered a landmark $4M to buy him out and a 10% life time royalty.

FDNS began testing their nasal screens in early 2016 in the Indian market with the BreatheEasy Consultants Pvt Limited before signing a final agreement with “Filter Your Life Healthcare Private Limited.”

All 21 winning ideas will be placed on UN bespoke crowdfunding platform where the whole world will be able to view, find, discuss ideas, invest their time (mentorship) or money (donate/invest) and participate in the newborn ideas. Depending on the amount of sponsorship raised, all events will be followed up by a product demo day, six months later at the UN Headquarters in New York City.

Paperless Erasable Braille Slate Project is aimed at transforming society for better education. As per a report developed by UNESCO and survey done by the UN as an example, In India, percentage of kids with disabilities still out of school: UN. This is not only a serious issue in India but also acts as a challenging problem all over the world. To provide basic education in primary schools of physically-disabled children is a challenge when compared to the students of the mainstream society.

The team involved three inventors from Chitkara University namely, Dr. Amandeep Singh Oberoi, Dr. Virender Kadyan and Mr. Vinay Kukreja. A patent has been filed based upon the proposed project bearing Patent Filing No: 201611033447. The team applies continuous efforts to help needy people by utilizing their technical skill and education experience for improving the education system of blind children.

On this laurel, Dr. Madhu Chitkara, Vice Chancellor of Chitkara University said, “It is a great honor that Chitkara University is being recognized as a research and innovation centric organization by United Nations (UN) at an International level and positioning our professors’ idea for crowdfunding of world-changing ideas.

Within our extensive networks of centers of excellence, world-class innovation labs, access to global researchers, staff, and students across disciplines are able to extend the boundaries of knowledge to International level.”

Speaking on the milestone, Dr. Oberoi (key member of the project), Associate Professor at Chitkara University said, “Chitkara University allows its staff and students to embark on research with access to future-focussed engineering facilities, allowing creative design solutions to be developed almost seamlessly from imagination to concept and reality in a single journey. Our project is aimed at putting technology to its best use to impact the education transformation in the society. We thank Chitkara University and United Nations for being supportive from day one on this project. We have already been funded 12% with about a month remaining to achieve the total funding of £2,000.”

Elaborating on the project, Dr. Kadyan (key contributor to the project), Assistant Professor at Chitkara University said, “Our project target is to support these blind children and provide education to them. They have special schools and use special language (such as Braille) for their education. During the initial stage of learning Braille language, they adopt a Braille slate, thick paper, sharp stylus to make impressions on paper. With the advancement in technology, there has been manifold progress in all the sectors. Similarly, the invention of Traditional Braille Slate leads to a revolution for the people who are visually impaired.”

Chitkara University has been striving hard to collaborate with international universities and research centers across the world so as to expose its students and faculty to the best of international studies and innovation practices.

TASK has also been instrumental in running specialized Finishing School batches for People with Disabilities (PWDs) to improve their employable skills and assists them in getting jobs. The Finishing School batches to PWDs and BPL youth are extended free of cost and highly subsidized for others.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Sujiv Nair, CEO -TASK said – Through the Finishing School concept TASK has made a humble beginning towards creating hope for unemployed youth through skilling.  This concept also address’s one of the key focus areas of the Honorable Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao Garu in creation of Golden Telangana.

Finishing School is an 8-12 weeks focused skilling program based on industry needs. Technologies focused for these Finishing School include C, C++, Java, Core Java, Microsoft Technologies, Mobile Applications on Android, Software Development, Testing, VLSI, Electrical Substation Design ,Basics of Pharmaceutical Activities, Office Administration, Selling & Retail Skills and Phlebotomy which were delivered in collaboration with local, national and international organizations.

Mukkala Swana Sree said, “I am a 2015 B.Tech pass out student from CSE Stream. After completion of B.Tech, I got to know about TASK that extends Finishing School program for passed out students where they provided foundation for the basic knowledge and improves our skills for accomplishing our dreams. They provide programs about different kinds of Technologies. They define our skills and makes us confident. Not only in the Technical field but improve our communication skills. It is a great platform for the different opportunists. It makes out best out of better. TASK gave me opportunity to be part of the Finishing School program. After completion of the training program I got placed in Tech Mahindra, they made me to achieve my dream of becoming a Software Engineer.“

Inspired by the success story in IT/ITES sector, TASK is all set to replicate this success to other industry verticals and will look to collaborate with leading global organizations in that space to create a right skill pool to meet the global demand in those sectors.
