Clear Face Masks for the deaf

The “new normal” of wearing a face mask has brought with it new challenges for those who are deaf and hard of hearing, as it prevents them from seeing people’s mouths which makes it impossible to read the lips or see the expressions of the people they are communicating with.

According to figures released by the World Health Organization (WHO), over 5% of the world’s population has disabling hearing loss. for the deaf and those that rely on lip reading & seeing facial expressions for communication, it is essential that they can see the mouth and lips of those they are communicating with.

Medicshield has developed transparent communication masks enabling visibility of the mouth and lips enabling those, such a the deaf  who rely on visual communication, such as lip reading or using sign language to communicate.

 

Why deaf people need transparent face masks

Currently, the typical face masks worn are made of cloth or paper which muffles speech and makes communication difficult even for those with no hearing issues.

The main problem for deaf and hard of hearing is that they cannot see people’s lips or facial expressions. Both the hard of hearing and deaf rely on lip reading, which is impossible if the lips are covered.

However, deaf people don’t rely on lip reading alone to communicate, as mouth movements for different words can be similar. The hard of hearing and deaf people use a combination of lip reading, expressions and any sounds they can hear and context to interpret what people are saying.

Sign language interpreters are essential workers who translate for Deaf people in hospitals, courts, workplaces, and more, so they also need transparent communication masks.

 

Who else needs transparent face masks

Clear face masks can benefit many people outside the deaf community. 

Autism – Children and adults on the autistic spectrum struggle with social clues and can be triggered by problems making communication even harder than usual. For autistic people communicating with people in masks with their face and expressions covered, adds to an already existing communication barrier.

Speech-language therapists – In order for speech-language therapists to carry out their job they need their mouths to be visible in order to model mouth movements as well as seeing how their patients are forming words and sounds.

Teachers, lecturers and interpreters all need to be heard throughout a class room, which isn’t possible with the normal face masks and expression is crucial too.
