MMF started from the experience of people who know best – the medical staff who wear face masks all day, every day.
To provide full protection, the seal around a face mask needs to be as airtight as possible. But it is difficult to achieve this.
Early in the pandemic, doctors and nurses were reporting extreme discomfort, bruising, and even tissue damage caused by masks that were too tight.
MyMaskFit takes a 3D scan of the face using a mobile App, and uses these measurements to select a mask body that is closest fit to the person’s face. They then trim the edges of the mask with a soft silicone seal to provide a perfect, comfortable fit.
We are looking for volunteers to take part in a face scanning trial so we can improve our product. Volunteers will be placed on a waiting list for priority access to MyMaskFit when it is launched.
Mindful of potential distribution issues, MyMaskFit decided to go for ‘distributed manufacturing’, which means that masks can be made close to where they are needed.
The team worked with Swansea University under a Made Smarter Innovation Test Bed programme to design a manufacturing process that can be applied anywhere in the world. All the customer needs is to download the App on their mobile
