BreathTech S^3 is a smart connected sensor and environmentally friendly mask specifically designed to track users’ respiration, mask filter usage, and mask fit. The effectiveness of mask filter decreases over time based on external environmental factors and personal usage, specifically how many breaths a user has taken while wearing a mask. BreathTech S^3 utilizes proprietary graphene-based sensors in order to monitor a person's respiration rate and the fit of their protective mask. The accompanying app will notify users of how well their mask fits, and when the mask needs to be washed or changed to a new mask for minimal environmental impact
