The newest mask is created that protects almost 100% from the virus
Until everyone is vaccinated and until the vaccine takes effect, doctors and dentists need to continue to be protected. Technology is continuing to work to find new ways and last but not least is this helmet.
It can be used by patients, it is plastic and transparent.
This mask is equipped with an air filtration pump.
Dentists and ENT doctors - ear, nose and throat - are at particular risk, as they need direct contact in those areas that also carry the virus.
Patients currently wear N95 masks and face shields. But these are expensive and still not very effective.
Researchers at Cornell University developed a model for patients that connects to a medical-grade air filtration pump from the top that creates a reverse airflow to prevent cough spray from escaping the mask.
Tests with it have been done on a software program and the risk of transmitting the virus through them is almost zero.
This mask completely closes the head with entrance gates and vacuum.
The cost can be cheap, if the production is done as recommended by the researchers. Not yet for sale.
