The problem we solve: According to WIRED article: "It is time to face facts, America: masks work." "However, there is no existing mask that solves the COVID19 problem." The mask needs to provide the level of comfort, wearability and safety for an entire day. Scientists should continue studying how best to disinfect and reuse masks. Engineers should reinvent the medical mask altogether, replacing disposable varieties with something more durable, sustainable, perhaps even self-sanitizing."
About our solution: The Sensoria Smart Mask filters out dust, droplets, virus and bacteria and monitors most common COVID19 symptoms. It is transparent to facilitate social interactions, it is washable and very comfortable to wear and breathe into. The mask allows the person wearing it to speak and be heard clearly. In addition, an electronic timer alerts you when to change your disposable filter. In addition to the hardware (sensors & microelectronics), our solution provides a custom mobile application allowing citizens to monitor their own body temperature and enjoy progressively more freedom of movement. Remote patient monitoring capabilities enabled via our clinician dashboard house by the HIPAA compliant Microsoft Azure cloud infrastructure. Sensoria Health platform consists of sensors, microelectronics based on Azure cloud enabling us to collect and convert biometric sensing data, via predictive analytics, into actionable information for citizens, patients and clinicians in near real-time.Progress to date:
We are currently in prototype development phase which is able to be completed within the next eight to twelve weeks. From there, we will move to validation of the system, algorithm development and testing as well as mobile application and clinician dashboard user interface design and creation.

COVID Problem We Address
As we have seen across the country and the globe, there has been a constant challenge in terms of volume and quality of PPE equipment which has caused unnecessary deaths. We need to be more proactive versus reactive so that no additional lives are spared.
Our COVID Solution
Our solution addresses not only the high quality but availability of needed PPE. In addition, our masks are reusable, comfortable, and decrease environmental impact of hundreds of millions of masks that have already been disposed. In addition, to not only the mask but we provide customized mobile application and clinician dashboard for effectively and efficiently managing their holistic patient population.
