平滑線的材質是聚對二氧環己酮 (polydioxanone, PDO)，PDO會
材質線體，不會被人體吸收; 鈴鐺體的材質: 聚乳酸聚甘醇酸 (poly L-lactide-glycolic acid, PLGA)會被人體吸收。
第三代的線體和鈴鐺體材質都是聚乳酸聚甘醇酸 (poly L-lactide-glycolic acid, PLGA)，會被人體吸收。
第一代鈴鐺線的固定處在頭皮的深層顳部筋膜 (deep temporal fascia)，第三代鈴鐺線是雙頭針，中間的入針點會有凹洞，凹洞一般在術後3-7天內會長平，慢一點的話，會在術後14天長平。
What is MyMask Movement?
MyMask Movement is social enterprise with a 501(c)(3) foundation built by volunteers dedicated to addressing the shortage of face masks by creating a virtual supply chain powered by 3D scanning, generative design, and digital manufacturing. Our mission is to save as many lives, as quickly as possible, by protecting front line workers. Founded in March 2020, our international group of volunteers has backgrounds ranging across 3D modeling, computer vision, engineering, medicine, computational fluid dynamic modeling, and more.
Does MyMask Movement make masks?
We are collaborating with numerous global generative design and additive manufacturing experts to produce masks using the personalized facial scans created by our iPhone app. Currently, we are in the process of providing masks to priority healthcare workers who are in the highest risk of exposure to COVID-19.
What does MyMask Movement do?
Where are these masks produced?
expand localized printing capabilities to every major region within the US healthcare space.
If I donate, what does the money contribute to?
MyMask Movement is working to save as many lives as fast as possible, starting with the most impacted communities – healthcare workers, frontline workers, and the elderly. Your donation will help us provide masks to hospitals, retirement homes, and research institutes as far as Kenya.
Is my donation tax deductible?
Yes, we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. We will send a donor letter at the end of the year.
Where are you based?
Our headquarters are in Stanford, California, but our remote team of over 100 volunteers spans across the globe.
How are you funded?
Our operations are only possible through the support of our corporate sponsors' and the JJJ Foundation's support. If you're interested in donating, you can find the donation link here or at the top right of our website.
How does the technology work?
Using Apple's facial recognition technology, we have redirected its use to creating precise 3D scans of the user's face to create a form fitting mask. All it takes is an iPhone X or higher model, our free mobile application, and yourself.
Why is there still a shortage of masks?
The demand for PPE has only increased since the beginning of the pandemic, especially as all medical workers return. When the pandemic and PPE shortage first began, there was a 4-6 month backlog in the supply chain. While PPE manufacturers scramble to keep up with the demand, the pandemic only worsened, and the US is reaching new peaks everyday.
Why can’t we just make more N95 machines?
Why can’t we just injection mold these masks?
But what about so-and-so 3D printed mask?
How is this different than so-and-so custom-fitted mask?
Aren’t 3D printed masks dangerous because you can’t sterilize them?
I’m a healthcare worker, how do I get a mask?
I’m not a healthcare worker, how do I get a mask?
Can these face masks replace current medical face masks like N95s?
What material is used to make the mask?
Is the mask reusable? If so, how long can I use it for?
The mask is reusable, but filters and elastics should be replaced when deemed necessary. We recommend getting a new mask after 6 months, as the human face changes over time, and the fit may no longer be sufficient.
How have you tested this?
We are currently testing our masks to meet FDA and NIOSH N95 respirator surgical mask standards.
Is this mask FDA or NIOSH certified?
MyMask was developed during the COVID-19 pandemic to relieve the ongoing PPE shortage. We are working with the FDA to be authorized for use under Emergency Use Authorization in times of medical crises. Also, we are looking to obtain FDA and NIOSH approval by the end of summer.
How do I assemble, wear, and sterilize the mask?
Please reference this PDF for further instructions on assembly, wear, and sterilization.
How well does the mask fit? Is it airtight?
With our facial scanning technology, we are making personalized masks only meant for you. This creates an airtight seal around the nose bridge, face, and chin, so air particles only enter through the filter area.
Why is fit so important? Why should I care about it?
Fit determines how well your mask creates a seal around your face, especially the nose bridge and chin area. Without an airtight seal, air particles can enter and leave when you inhale and exhale, putting yourself and others around you at risk. This why we created personalized masks to ensure an airtight seal for maximized protection.
Is it hard to breathe in?
How does sizing work? Am I a small, medium, or large?
Can I autoclave it?
I don’t have access to a proper sterilization equipment, how can I sterilize it?
You can sterilize your masks using soap and warm water, and the masks are also dishwasher safe. Please refer to the CDC website for further instructions and recommendation on mask sterilization.
Can I print this mask at home?
Can I get a mask for my child?
I don’t like the straps, what can I do?
We’ve designed our mask to be strap agnostic. You can swap out the supplied straps for any strap with a width of ⅝” or less.
