Kerala engineering student designs mask fitted with mic and speaker
Kerala: Masks became an essential part of our lives due to the Covid-19 pandemic. On the flip side, doctors are finding it difficult to communicate with patients by covering mouth with masks.
To overcome this problem, a first-year B-Tech student Kevin Jacob from Trissur Government Engineering College designed a mask fitted with mic and speaker. He came up with an innovative solution after he closely observed his parents, who are doctors.
Jacob first tested the mask on his parents and later he started producing the masks in a large quantity with the growing demand. He said that a single mask can be used continuously for four to six hours once charged for 30 minutes.
