Research project: Development of the fundamental 3D face-mask model and multi-individual model using mesh morphing approaches

Currently Active: 

Respiratory masks are attached to individuals to manage a number of respiratory disorders, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder and acute cardiogenic pulmonary oedema. 

Despite the respiratory benefits of NIV being widely accepted, skin damage complications represent a significant burden to both the individual, in the form of pain and discomfort, as well as the health care provider.

Our team is working in collaboration with Radii Devices and Philips Sleep and Respiratory Care to understand pressure-sensitive adhesive properties on skin, develop meaningful evaluation protocols for adhesive materials on skin (with human and/or simulated surfaces) and to develop technologies for improving respiratory mask design.
