Face Mask that Monitors Heart Rate
The global epidemic of corona virus not only introduced every human being in the world with hand sanitizers and face masks but also explained their importance. And now these two things have become a part of everyday life.
Scientists at Northwestern University in the United States have developed a smart face mask that will be able to track a variety of medical data.
Inside the N95 mask, called FaceBit, is a sensor that examines a variety of medical data.
This sensor monitors the heartbeat for blood pumping with the movement of the head, while the mask also detects respiratory leakage or poor fitting.
In this way, the sensor can help identify a number of disorders. Heart and respiratory data also show that you are not stressed or that you need to take a break from work.
The sensor in this mask cannot be charged, although the prototype model has a battery, but the sensor can extend the life of the mask by 11 days with the power of breath, heat, motion and sun.
Experts want to gradually make this mask battery free. The mask is currently undergoing clinical trials and other tests, after which it will be launched in the market.
