Clear masks will be a ‘breakthrough’

A NEW range of clear face masks have been launched by Dumfriesshire company Alpha Solway.

The new transparent masks are medical grade and have been manufactured to offer high-quality protection and clearer communication

The company says it offers a breakthrough for specific audiences, particularly children and the elderly as well as those suffering from hearing-impairments, learning disabilities, autism or dementia.

Managing director Steven Binnie said: “The breakthrough of our transparent respiratory range will be invaluable for the estimated 12 million people across the UK who live with hearing loss and struggle to communicate with those wearing face coverings as the covid pandemic continues.

“Positive non-verbal communication has been shown to decrease patient anxiety and give better outcomes. And it gives the patient confidence that a physician is sensitive and understanding. As a result, the patient is more trusting and communicative.

“Our healthcare team have been working closely with frontline NHS staff throughout the pandemic and this new product range was developed to help them in their interactions with patients and each other.”
