One of the lightest and most comfortable range of respiratory masks
||The Intersurgical EcoLite™ range of oxygen and aerosol therapy products is an important part our ongoing focus on sustainable development.
Improved patient comfort has been key to the ongoing development of the Eco range. The latest manufacturing technology has enabled us to combine two non-PVC materials in the same product. The polypropylene material which forms the body of the Intersurgical EcoLite mask is clear, lightweight and rigid enough to maintain the mask’s shape, while the second softer Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) material is utilized in the seal, which is in contact with the patient’s face.
The use of these materials and the unique design of the masks have resulted in a range of oxygen and aerosol therapy products which provide improved patient comfort and a reduced environmental impact. (1,2,3,4,5)
