Swiss startup HMCARE has developed one of the products, which is the need of the hour during the COVID-19 pandemic. Well, the startup has come up with the HelloMask, a transparent surgical mask with the intention to let healthcare works communicate with patients in a more natural way. The startup based in Geneva has secured $1.05 million (nearly €0.92 million) to produce the transparent surgical mask.
HMCARE was founded by Diane Baatard, Thierry Pelet, Klaus Schönenberger and Sacha Pierre Sidjanski. Notably, Baatard realised the need for transparent face masks while working as a storyteller for hospitalised children and Schönenberger saw a similar necessity while treating patients during the Ebola outbreak in 2015.
