High-Tech 'Smart' Face Mask Helps Hong Kong Families Combat Swine Flu
Date:7/6/2009

HONG KONG, July 6 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Beginning today, Hong Kong people and their children will have direct access to Filligent's patented anti- microbial face mask, the BioMask(TM). The revolutionary mask, which traps and kills germs like H1N1 upon contact, was launched at Asia's leading drugstore chain, Watsons, today. In addition, Hong Kong's biggest travel agency, Hong Thai, will be providing the BioMask(TM), on a complimentary basis, to all air travelers through the end of August. Up until now, the CE-certified, specialist mask has only been available to medical and healthcare professionals. The launch and availability of the BioMask(TM) in consumer retailers and service providers is significant because, as CEO Melissa Mowbray-d'Arbela says, "The BioMask(TM) is the first 'intelligent' face mask. You don't have to be a health care worker or medical professional to use it correctly. Instead, the mask is very easy to put on, wear and dispose of properly. Thus, it's one of the best forms of protection for ordinary people and their children during this year's swine flu crisis."

Whereas ordinary surgical masks fit poorly with lots of leakage from the sides and become easily contaminated with live germs, the BioMask(TM) is easy to put on, fits securely and kills germs continuously. Unlike an ordinary mask, it is not covered with live germs when you take it off. Thus, the BioMask(TM) is great for kids who tend to touch and fidget with face masks.

The BioMask(TM) fits ages 5 years and older, making it an indispensable accessory for students this summer: Even if there's no school, parents can send their kids out to play, travel and congregate with others, safe in the knowledge that their child is wearing the most protective and comfortable face mask ava
