Fort Worth, Tex – Sam-Go Products has introduced a new see-through surgical mask and respirator mask that can help those with hearing loss communicate with their physicians.

Many people with hearing loss rely on visual clues from the face and mouth to aid in understanding the speech of a clinician. However, traditional sterile surgical masks are opaque and prevent those with hearing loss from reading lips.

The new Next-Gen Clear Surgical Mask from Sam-Go is a clear mask that will allow persons with hearing loss to communicate and understand dentists, surgeons and nurses through their facial clues and lip reading.

The Next Gen Mask is reusable and reportedly has a life expectancy of over a year. The mask is also designed with a filter that offers 240 hours of filtered air protection, which can subsequently be replaced.
