W-MASK / Half face shield mask


W-Mask(Face Shield detachable mask) is thought to ease the inconvenience of existing masks to improve the working environment of medical staff working at the front line due to the prolonged COVID-19.
In addition, the recent issue of causing environmental problems in disposable medical devices has led to the aim of minimizing one-time use to overcome them.
Therefore, the W-Mask is a "Sustainable product that is easy to prevent and clean sterilize so that it can be reused simultaneously with respirators that can provide protection for eyes and respiratory tract" along with overcoming shortages of medical and quarantine equipment.
