For a few weeks we have been working on the Pandemic Relief Initiative, (which you can read more about here). We are so incredibly thankful for everyones participation in the project and we couldn´t do it without you.
What has stemmed from this initiative is a new idea of creating a protective mask that can serve the healthcare workers as well as patients during the ongoing pandemic. Recently we applied for the Vinnova grant (read more here) that is aimed at supporting projects that can help society in the ongoing crisis. A few days ago we got word that we, together with a few other companies with great ideas, have been selected to recieve the grant. This will allow us to create a product which is aimed at the specific user needs of medical personnel and able to multifunctionally be used to help patients as well. Some of you have seen the damage being done to the healthcare workers faces when they wear the facemasks, the pressure and shafing over time is substantial. One our primary aims is to create a product that can be used for many hours at a time without causing discomfort. However, the most important feature that we will focus on is to increase the protection for both the user and their surroundings. Stay tuned for more info.
