The Smart-Seal surgical mask utilizes a patent-pending ‘cinch and hug’ technology and its single-tie design eliminates gaps between the wearer’s face and the mask, thus helping to reduce contamination risks in the perioperative environment.

The Smart-Seal features closed-cell foam and a fog-reducing vapor barrier and also has a large chamber with two rows of sonic bonds that help keep the mask filter away from the wearer’s face and minimize distractions.

Cardinal Health Category Management president Lisa Ashby said the Smart-Seal mask provides the next evolution in surgical mask protection, addressing not only fog and fit, but also providing the highest level of filtration and fluid resistance.
