Overview

The FaceView Mask™ is the new face mask that is clear. It let’s you see the face and read lips.

Hi, my name is Jeanne Hahne and I’m a registered nurse in San Francisco. I would like to introduce a new surgical face mask that can lift the barrier between patient and caregiver.

That’s really important for communication, seeing the entire facial expression, especially a reassuring smile. A clear mask means reading lips for the deaf and the elderly. For a scared child, a clear mask allows them to connect with their caregiver or family. The difference between an opaque and the FaceView Mask™ is CLEAR and can make a huge difference in patient care.

The benefits are clear, and we hope to bring this next generation of face masks to the medical and hearing-impaired communities, as well as to the non-medical industries. Masks are also worn in dental offices, clean rooms in high tech, environmental services, disaster relief, nail salons, military uses and on the street!

Our goal is to produce three models of the FaceView Mask™. A non-medical model for personal use as a dust mask, a tested medical/surgical model, and a respirator model with N95 certification. Initial prototypes of the personal model are available now, but we still want to perfect this prototype.

The Impact

Jeanne wearing the clear maskThe FaceView Mask™ will improve communication, connection and compassion. It can change the mask standard altogether. That is why I’ve been working on this project for a long time. You could be a part of bringing this change to the world and literally, CHANGE THE FACE OF PATIENT CARE!

The first nurse, Florence Nightingale, said, “Were there none who were discontented with what they have, the world would never reach anything better.” She had a point. We need to be looking to make new things better, and the FaceView Mask™ has the potential to transform the medical/dental/occupational professions on a global scale. With your support, we can revolutionize the mask industry!
