Cantel Medical said that its subsidiary Crosstex International has launched SecureFit, a new series of medical face masks.
The SecureFit series of masks address scientific research that points to poorly fitting masks as a major hindrance to their effectiveness.
SecureFit earloop medical face masks’ patent-pending design enables wearers to quickly and easily adjust the mask for a tighter and customised fit, Cantel Medical said.
Crosstex International CEO Gary Steinberg said that the masks are intended to protect against the spread of harmful infectious diseases and if they don’t fit properly, they are rolling out a red carpet for dangerous infectious material to bypass the mask.
Cantel Medical CEO Andy Krakauer said that there is increased attention on respiratory-transmitted infectious disease, both from a cost standpoint for healthcare institutions, as well as from a public health perspective, and the literature now shows that simple medical face masks can play a significant role in addressing both.
