In order to address the emergency situation caused by SARS-CoV-2 pandemic and the consequent deficiency of PPEs (Personal Protective Equipment) to preserve Medical Personnel (MP) and patients health, IIT decided to apply its Staff know-how to modify existing equipment, meant for other usages, in protective devices for MP or patients.

In particular, IIT decided to transform Cressi’s full-face snorkelling masks, into medical personnel protection masks. Assuming that the medical personnel is healthy and breaths out pathogen-free air we focused on optimizing the filtration of the airflow into the mask.
