AIR+ Smart Mask Wins Coveted Product Design at Red Dot Award 2016
The AIR+ Smart Mask is recognised for design and innovation excellence, usability and ergonomics
By: Innosparks Pte Ltd
The AIR+ Smart Mask is the world's first respiratory mask to offer superior protection and comfort for mask wearers through its three innovations - mask sizes in small, medium and large designed to fit both adults and children above seven years old; a built-in smart valve to improve the ease and speed in which exhaled air could be vented out from the mask; as well as the micro ventilator, which when used with the Smart Mask, eliminates the unpleasant build-up of heat, moisture and carbon dioxide that occurs within a conventional mask after prolonged use.
"Winning the Red Dot Award is a testament of our robust performance in discovering and delivering innovative yet practical technological solutions that meets the needs of modern society. We are encouraged by this industry recognition and will continue to deliver on our goal of changing lives for the better through our engineering expertise," said Mr Gareth Tang, General Manager of Innosparks.
