HaLe is an ultra-thin and flexible sensor specifically designed to track users’ respiration and mask filter usage.

Facial masks worn to protect against particulates, air pollution, bacteria, viruses, volatile organic compounds commonly found in the home, gases, and many other environmental toxins, become ineffective and dangerous to continue using after the recommended usage time.

The effectiveness of the filter decreases over time based on external environmental factors and personal usage, specifically how many breaths a user has taken while wearing a mask.

A High-tech, Low-cost Solution for Tracking User Respiration in Protective Face Masks
How to Use HaLe
01

Users wear the protective mask normally; HaLe sensor does NOT have batteries and is seamlessly embedded into the mask filter.

Using RFID/NFC technology, the respiration data collected from the sensor can be paired to the user’s personal, or company issued, mobile device.

02

Visualized data will inform the user of their filter usage, alert them if the mask needs to be changed, as well as predict when the mask will no longer be safe to use.

In-app notifications can be pre-set or automatically engaged to remind users to check their mask usage metrics.

Safety and Compliance

  • Workers and professionals in a variety of industries and lines of work are constantly being exposed to dangerous chemicals, gases, pollutants, bacteria and viruses. Workers on the front lines run the risk of becoming ill in the short term, or have slowly progressing medical issues, like lung cancer, arise later in life.In order to protect workers, their protective equipment needs to be functioning properly and effectively.
  • For large companies that retain a large and/or specialized labor force, keeping workers healthy and productive is of the utmost importance. Insurance, workers’ compensation, and medical leave can be detrimental to a company’s operations.By being able to track employee’s adherence to company policies regarding worker safety, companies can reduce costs and increase productivity and efficiency.
