Imagine what you might be missing.
55% of communication is nonverbal. Standard surgical masks block the wearer's face and prevent the ability to see facial expressions and read lips.
Miscommunication is a leading cause of medical errors and can be prevented. The potential for miscommunication is especially compounded in Deaf and hard of hearing patients when standard facemasks are used.
Masks don't have to mean miscommunication.
ClearMask™ is the first, patent-pending transparent surgical mask with full-face visibility. The mask provides assured protection with a smart design optimized for comfort and breathability.
Compared to other facemasks, the ClearMask™ allows patients and individuals to see more of the wearer’s face and facial expressions, while providing enhanced comfort, breathability, and safety.
Everyone benefits from seeing facial expressions and emotions.
Whole-face communication is especially important for:
Deaf and hard of hearing patients
Deaf and hard of hearing medical staff, medical students, laboratory technicians, and scientists
Sign language interpreters and agencies
Patients under stress and anxiety
Organ transplant recipients
Limited English Proficiency patients
Medical staff who cannot receive seasonal flu vaccinations and must wear masks
All medical staff so that they can see their colleagues' faces and better understand dialogue in noisy environments
