One of the biggest challenges faced by the healthcare community during the COVID 19 pandemic is the requirement to create an effective barrier between the healthcare personnel and the patient. One of the methods used is a face visor to protect the eyes, nose & mouth from ingress by the virus. However, this has not proven to be effective enough and hence a better option was an immediate need.

The Corona Virus is negatively charged. Our design of the e-Visor keeps the surface negatively charged

Hence, when the virus gets in contact with the visor or the linen designed by us, the virus will be automatically repelled from the surface of the material and eliminates contamination

The e-Visor applications is just not limited to visors only, but also linen and other textiles used in ICU, or other Covid-19 treatment centres
