Why is the ClearMask™ important?
Over half of communication is visual. We often depend on facial expressions and visual cues when we communicate with others. We as humans are highly attuned to facial expressions and emotions, even on a subconscious level. Imagine what others miss when you cover your face with a standard surgical mask.
The ClearMask, with its full-face transparent window, helps improve communication for everyone. The ability to see others' facial expressions and emotions enhances the patient-provider relationship and course of care. When individuals are able to see each other's faces and smiles, outcomes such as patient satisfaction, trust, and health improve.¹ ² ³
