Virimask, a new solution for enhanced user safety and comfort, against Viral exposure!
Frontline healthcare workers in the NHS and many individuals are wearing facemasks to reduce risk of contracting coronavirus, whilst also minimising the risks of touching their noses and mouths. However, even N95 masks cannot fully protect the vulnerable area. Any blocked viral particles stay on the mask’s surface and pose a hazard when handled and thrown away. Furthermore, facemasks don’t cover eyes.
Virimask will benefit from a Zero VAT rating for PPE from 1st of May, until 31st of July
Approx. dispatch date: Late May 2020
Although the nose is the main route for coronavirus exposure into the lungs, some researchers believe the eye’s conjunctiva is another possible point of entry. In order to combat this situation, we have been working with Dr. Noam Gavriely to develop the ViriMASK Protective Oculo-Respirator. Virimask is a new respirator mask that provides more effective protection, preventing exposure of the wearer and spread to the environment of the Coronavirus.
Virimask is the result of Dr. Gavriely’s work in protection, from chemical and biological agents, adapted to mass population pathogen protection.
Most current masks are limited in continuous use and are not particularly comfortable, or hygienic in longer term wear.
ViriMASK is strapped around the head, covering the eyes with a see-through visor and the nose and mouth with protected with a disposable filtering component. The mask can be washed and reused. The filters must be replaced after 60 hours of use and disposed safely via the envelope provided. The mask is designed with comfort and fit in longer term use in the design DNA. Fresh filters must be changed every 60 hours. The 60 hour filter supplied comes with a storage pouch for in between uses.
Virimask is designed to last a lifetime with good care, simply wash in soap and water or wipe with alcohol wipes. Covid-19 is the current major concern. However, pathogenic threats are a continual threat, Ebola, SARS and MERS are widely recognised challenges in recent years. Virimask, can be stored ready for use in future threats.

The backbone of the ViriMASK is the Barrier-FrameTM around the nose, mouth and eyes (shown schematically in red).
This frame is made from elastic biocompatible materials with compliant sections according to the wearer’s face softness and is designed to fit snugly to the wearer’s skin surface.
Proprietary replaceable filter cartridge, shown in yellow, contain pleated HEPA H14 and is sealed to the Barrier Frame.
While the ViriMASK™ is essentially durable, the filter cartridge will need to be replaced daily.

Aalto University in Helsinki create a 3D simulation video from recent research into Covid19 virus spread in the supermarket.
If the person coughs and does not cover their mouth. The droplets will take minutes to expand. The yellow is the virus impact and the blue is the wet droplet impact on the hard surfaces.
ViriMASK™ FIT TESTING!
Existing mask fit tests usually involve introducing a strong recognisable odour to the individual wearing the mask, a pass comprising the individual’s decision on odour recognition. The mask will be supplied with a cover to which the user simply covers the hole in the middle with a finger and then inhale and exhale to verify good fit and absence of leaks. The cover is then discarded.
