Xiaomi Patents New Mask With Improved Fit and Protection Amidst Coronavirus

With COVID-19 in its current state, a variety of companies are developing virus products and technology. Earlier this year, Xiaomi unveiled a new mask, but now licensed one even better with enhanced health and defense.

On 17 March this year, the patent was granted and describes a facial mask that has a 3-dimensional skeleton supporting the face of a wearer. The mask is made of silicone so that it can be adjusted quickly to a comfortable fit. It is lightweight enough.

The other notable improvement to this mask is better air restriction. This new mask provides better air sealing around the mouth which significantly decreases the chances of the wearer contacting an airborne disease. Thus, the mask would not only be able to help against COVID-19 but would also prove useful to people with other respiratory conditions.

The coronavirus has spread across more than 170 countries and has infected thousands of people. Inventions such as this could be extremely fruitful for countries that are suffering the most such as Italy, and we hope the technology is able to make it into mass production and becomes available soon.
