Researchers at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology have developed a solution that combats COVID-19 in the most innovative way.

 

The innovative new technology creates an invisible barrier to protect against virus particles, such as those found in COVID-19, MERS, and influenza. This air screen blocks aerosols created by speaking, large droplets from coughing and sneezing, as well as the stagnant air that often surrounds us, which may contain harmful particles. This technology serves as an additional layer of protection for the eyes, nose, and mouth.

 

Without the mask obscuring half of your speech, you can communicate effectively. Moreover, you reduce the use of masks, which are harmful to the environment.

 

Masks also hinder facial recognition and emotional expression, which can negatively impact communication and lead to headaches, skin irritations, and decreased focus and patience in various occupations, as noted by Technion.

 

Recently, Technion has granted a license for its technology to a startup named Wisdome Wearables. The company is now seeking collaborators and working on bringing the technology to the market.
