The AerFrame is a patent-pending mask fitter designed to improve the comfort of existing face masks by reducing the gaps between a user’s mask and their face.
Engineered to be reusable and worn with nearly any mask, the AerFrame reduces eyewear fog and prevents irritation caused by ear loops.
The AerFrame can reduce costs while improving comfort and maintaining safety.
Designed with feedback from hospital infection prevention for wearing protective face masks
Invented, engineered, and tested at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
The AerFrame is made entirely in the USA
"The frame applies enough pressure around the edges to convert our looser masks to be more effective. It gives us a lot more peace of mind to know we are better protected from respiratory exposure."
- Dr. Michael Bass
