Desmania launches first ever full face mask, supported by IIT Delhi, AIIMS

New Delhi, Jun 1 (UNI) To counter this pandemic, the design team at Desmania, with mentoring from founders and senior design managers, came out with a plethora of ideas, ranging from PPE, sanitisation, e-com products and low-cost ventilators.
Aarmr, the Full Face Mask, the most innovative catch of the hackathon was taken up to evolve into a prized product. A simple, affordable mask that has three times efficacy of the normal mask.
Firstly, it covers the entire face so there is no risk of touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Secondly, it stands on the sustainability tenet of being re-usable and durable. It provides clear vision to the wearer because of the low refractive index of acrylic. This is the most innovative mask for the common man as well as for the front line warriors like doctors, policemen and delivery boys.
''Aarmr is being tested with the doctors, work force, delivery boys and has also been tried with the police force. They have all loved the product and are pushing for early deployment. The design evolution is continuous and so is the refinement to design. Desmania plans to ramp up the production by the end of June, 2020 to meet the massive requirements from across the globe'' said Anuj Prasad, Co-founder & CEO of Desmania.
The design philosophy behind this mask is a thoughtful integration of Goggles, Face Shield and N95 Mask. The result is a true innovation that can reach the masses and be a first shield of protection in the covid times. Design solves the problem of fogging and heavy breathing, through innovative features.
There is an inherent modularity developed in the product. This helps in customizing the mask for different user segments with unique needs. The modular design also helps in creating a width along the price points, in order to make them affordable.
Another problem, which the designers addressed through this design is the sustainability aspect of masks. In the present scenario, all the masks are disposable and are creating huge challenges for waste management and recycling.
Aarmr, the Full Face Mask is durable! It can be washed or sanitized with soap water and can be used for life. The filter in most of the product categories is also washable and has a permutations of Nano, Surgical and N95.
In the series of innovations for quality medical care at affordable prices, Desmania has at least five more products lined up that will contribute in a big way to covid protection, for doctors, health workers and the large generic work force, according to a statement here on Monday.
