Our Approach

We believe in providing a robust FFP3 mask solution that facilitates healthcare workers, as informed by evidence.

The Team

Cross-disciplinary expertise within Cambridge Biomedical Campus is delivering the next-generation FFP3 mask.


We co-produce with innovative industrial partners to translate ideas into reality and deliver solutions to the NHS frontline.

What over 1500 healthcare workers told us

Mask fit

Mask fit needs to be improved to accommodate individual faces & prevent seal disruption.


Wearing FFP3 masks significantly challenges clinical communication, both verbal and non-verbal.


When worn for long periods, FFP3 masks can result in skin irritation and thermoregulation issues.

Delivery of Patient Care

A better designed mask will promote the delivery of patient care and restoration of healthcare services.

Strong collaborations
lead to enduring results.

We believe that collaboration with industry is crucial to the delivery of a better FFP3 mask for healthcare workers.
