Reduces anxiety in stressful situations

“For any patient coming into an Emergency Department or any stressful situation in the hospital, they often have a crowd of people around them, and surgical masks can be very stressful, intimidating, and scary. Just taking that simple barrier away and replacing it with the ClearMask can make a huge difference in reducing anxiety.” - Emily M., Shock Trauma Nurse

Decreases fear in children

“Children especially need to know what’s happening, if they should feel scared or happy. They often look to their parents or doctors for additional information, but surgical masks block the face and create significant anxiety. The ClearMask can really provide access and help them understand their surroundings, such as finally seeing their parents or doctor smiling, and knowing that it will be okay.” - Jennifer R., Pediatric Neuropsychologist

Increases connection during childbirth

“When a mother and father meet their baby for the first time, it’s a highly emotional moment. But unfortunately, a lot of times there’s a surgical mask on everyone’s faces for infection control reasons, and they can’t fully express themselves during this time. The ClearMask brings more connection and joy to the parents, and can make a powerful difference.” - Deepa K., Pediatric Anesthesiologist

“The ClearMask is a game changer. Regular masks can amplify the perception that doctors are impersonal, which can impact our hospital’s patient satisfaction scores and reimbursement. The ClearMask helps us improve our bottom line while providing more compassionate care to all patients.”
— Former Chief Nursing Officer

Reduces isolation and loneliness

"Having spent over 100 days in the hospital, I can assure you that surgical masks greatly inhibit communication. The hospital can be a sterile and lonely place—even when doctors and staff try so hard to express compassion. There are so many emotions that cannot be expressed through a standard mask. The ClearMask facilitates that vital human connection that’s missing in healthcare." - Monica Lindsell, Leukemia and Stem Cell Transplant Survivor

Improves access to vital communication

“By wearing a standard surgical mask, we’re immediately placing a communication barrier between ourselves and our patients, especially those who rely heavily on visual communication, including deaf and hard of hearing individuals. The masks block visual cues—including facial expressions, lip-reading, and emotions—all of which are critical for deaf and hard of hearing people to fully communicate and participate in the course of care. The ClearMask reduces miscommunication and confusion, while adhering to safety and infection control protocol.” - Dr. Zachary Featherstone, Pediatrics and Family Medicine

Restores human connection

“As a person living with cystic fibrosis, I need to wear masks often and find that standard surgical masks feel dehumanizing, like a barrier between myself and those around me. The ClearMask would restore that human connection in my interactions with others. A simple smile goes a long way.” - Melanie Abdelnour, Patient Advocate
