Crosstex offers adjustable medical face masks

Medical face mask maker Crosstex has launched a new generation of ear-loop medical face masks. With a patent-pending design, SecureFit ear-loop medical face masks enable wearers to quickly and easily adjust the mask for a more secure and customized fit, according to the company.

A recent study (American Journal of Infection Control, September 2010, Vol. 38:7, pp. 501-508) found that a tighter-fitting mask may offer more than 100-fold greater infection control benefit than standard, loose-fitting masks, Crosstex noted.

"Medical face masks are critical FDA-cleared medical devices intended to prevent infection, but they are only as good as their fit," said Andrew Whitehead, company spokesperson, in a press release. SecureFit is a great addition to our MaskEnomics system, because it provides yet another option for dental and medical professionals to use the right mask for the right task."

SecureFit masks are available in all three ASTM performance (fluid resistance/filtration) classifications: SecureFit Isofluid (low performance), SecureFit Procedural (moderate performance), and SecureFit Ultra (high performance).
