Masks4Safety – Masks to Breathe Safely

Protective masks with temperature and humidity monitoring, developed in the scope of Portuguese Masks4Safety project. The measurement of these parameters will make it possible to assess the protection effectiveness, generating alerts whenever it is identified that the useful life has been exceeded. This assessment is based on the identification of periods and conditions of use, allowing to register situations that may favor the spread of the virus, such as high temperature or humidity. Masks4Safety project (n.69468) results from a partnership between Neutroplast, CeNTI, Valmet, and 2CA-Braga, and was co-financed by Portugal 2020, under the Operational Program for Competitiveness and Internationalization (COMPETE 2020) through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
