Project TitleInfection Control Face Mask
Track Code2010-007
Short Description

The subject technology is an antimicrobial mask, used to help prevent the spread of germs (viruses and bacteria) from one person to another with an additional securing strap between the two ear straps. Typical antimicrobial masks have straps that fit over each of the ears, holding the mask against the face. The additional strap would decrease the ability of the wearer from pulling off the mask during normal use.
