A mask is a product that has extensive use in our daily lives. People wear masks to protect themselves against viruses and air pollution; sometimes they also consider wearing a facemask to warm the air before it enters their lungs. However, masks muffle the voice and can lead to incomprehensibility. In some situations, this can be extremely problematic – during surgery, for example, for which doctors wear medical masks.
COMMUNI CROSS is a medical mask for doctors that incorporates a mini audio system. It allows medical staff to communicate clearly with each other during surgeries. Sound is transmitted from the inside of the mask when the user speaks. The audio system consists of a microphone and a speaker, connected by a circuit board that supports the function. The blue filter serves the regular function of a medical mask. It is removable and can be replaced for hygienic purposes.
