General Description

CAUTION: The technical solution contained in this document was developed in response to the emergency of SARS-Cov-2 virus pandemic and did not go through all tests and controls normally required for the development of medical-surgical devices. Art. 15 from Decreto Legge n. 18 of 2020 foresees procedures to manage Covid-19 emergency and enables Inail to validate Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) as an extraordinary measure. At the moment, we have submitted the project to Inail and we are waiting for validation.


In order to address the emergency situation caused by SARS-CoV-2 pandemic and the consequent deficiency of PPEs (Personal Protective Equipment) to preserve Medical Personnel (MP) and patients health, IIT decided to apply its Staff know-how to modify existing equipment, meant for other usages, in protective devices for MP or patients.

In particular, IIT decided to transform Seac's full-face snorkelling masks, into medical personnel protection masks. Assuming that the medical personnel is healthy and breaths out pathogen-free air we focused on optimizing the filtration of the airflow into the mask.

IIT technical solution consists of 3 main components:
