In this product, the plastic strip teared from the packaging is re-designed as the headband strap. In the current epidemic situation, wearing the mask has become a necessity for both doctor and pedestrian. However, it causes pain at the back of the ear due to the long period of wearing or caused by the different head circumferences of individuals. In this case, this product can make people more comfortable when wearing. The multiple gears are designed for all different head circumferences, which can be adjusted according to individuals. This greatly solve the problems caused by big or small head circumference. This product re-designs the discarded part of the package, which is both environmental friendly and resource -conserving. The headband strap of the mask uses “pla”, which is a degradable material, achieving both high strength and environmental protection. At present, the epidemic is very serious, making the mask become a necessity for infection control. The design of combining the headband strap with the original ear straps could prevent overstretching at the ears, so that significantly reduce the discomfort.
