ISRAEL - Invisible Face Mask

Arno Froese

Face masks protect their wearers from life-threatening respiratory infections of all kinds. However, they also pose harmful psychological effects, such as reducing facial identification and emotion recognition, making it difficult for people to understand what those who wear them are saying. 

Conventional face masks have also led to a dramatic rise in plastic waste, exacerbated by governmental mask-wearing mandates, producing millions of tons annually.

In a breakthrough that will save lives and also help protect the environment, researchers at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa have developed a revolutionary invisible face mask to protect wearers against the transmission of COVID, MERS, influenza and other respiratory viruses.

The team, led by Prof. Moshe Shoham and Prof. David Greenblatt, invented a radically new solution to the conventional mask dilemma by creating an invisible “air screen” in front of the wearer’s face. The air screen originates from within a lightweight filter-covered unit mounted on the visor of a cap. Several major advantages became clear: The air screen protects the eyes, nose and mouth without reducing facial identity, emotion recognition or oral communication. The air screen is also reusable, so it doesn’t pollute the environment like the plastic throw-away ones used around the world.

The Technion recently licensed the technology to Wisdome Wearables Ltd. This start-up is currently in the process of commercializing the product and seeking partners to realize this disruptive technology for the benefit of those at high risk of suffering from respiratory viruses.

Arno's Commentary

In the meantime, we must look back a few decades. Securing safety belts for drivers and passengers was unthinkable decades ago. In the US, it was in 1969 when the seatbelt became nationally mandated. How about smoking? Selecting a seat on a plane, one had the option for smoking or non-smoking. These things belong to the history books. Smoking is outlawed in public places in virtually all countries of the world. Not buckling up can result in fines up to $200 (in the US).

Dr. Roger Liebi, in his book Bible and Science (not available), quotes Number 19:11, 16, 19 dealing with the subject “Bacteria and the Dead.” He then writes: “The Law of Moses taught that direct contact with a human corpse contaminates. However, one is cleansed by washing in the water of the ritual bath … The knowledge behind this law was ignored into the 19th century. As a result, at times up to 66% of new mothers died. The Jewish doctor Ignaz Semmelweis (1818-1865) was the first to demand that his students wash their hands thoroughly before helping in the delivery room. In this way, he was able to drastically reduce the number of deaths following childbirth. Semmelweis reaped bitter abuse from many of his scientific colleagues and finally ended up in a mental hospital. His colleagues found no problem dissecting a corpse for research purposes and then assisting a birth with unwashed hands. Only later was Dr. Joseph Lister (1827-1912) successful in introducing hygienic measures.”

Now we are thankful for medical science protecting us from bacteria, viruses, and other disease-causing agents. Mask-wearing, keeping distance, and vaccination have caused quite a controversy among believers. Worldometers.info documents deaths due to Covid-19 per 1 million population: USA, 3,300; Israel, 1,270. How effective invisible masks will be at reducing the spread of contagious disease will only be known several years later.
