PROTOTYPUM Facemask: full-face protective mask for medics
Client: OWN PROJECT
Year: 2020 – 2021
Team: PROTOTYPUM, COVMASK, IMS-DRAŠNAR
Status: LOOKING FOR AN INVESTOR
The PROTOTYPUM FACEMASK project is built on know-how and experience from successful project covmask.cz. We continue on the idea of developing an uncompromising pressure mask system for healthcare professionals.
Facemask is developed to protect front-line medical personnel. It provides the highest possible level of protection and allows long-term use with maximum comfort. The filter ventilation unit in combination with the innovative air distribution system ensures easy breathing. The mask also allows you to filter the exhaled air and thus protect the environment.
facemask key features
The mask meets the requirements for the highest degree of protection. At the same time, it allows the filtration of exhaled air.
The excellent clarity of the visor ensures a wide angle of view and at the same time provides sufficient visual contact between colleagues.
Thanks to its low weight (300g) and shaped seal, the mask is comfortable even when worn for a long time.
All mask surfaces are designed for easy sterilization. It can be sterilized by immersion in a solution or autoclave.
We pay a big attention to build mock-ups and functional prototypes at the very beginning of the design process. We extensively using additive manufacturing techniques and conventional model-making technics which helps us to iterate fast thus develop fast and improve the design on the go. At the same time, we always keep in mind the limitation of the mass production technics, to design a feasible product.
RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
We run a comprehensive study among doctors from which we obtain data for the solution design and material development. We are cooperating with experienced engineers, experts, and technical universities. In the second phase of the project, we also plan to develop a ventilation system.
Do you want to know more?
We have a set of functional prototypes that went through comprehensive testing in hospitals and the results are very promising. We are in the stage of finishing up the first phase of the project and we are looking for a strategic partner who would help us to move the project forward.
