SOUTH WINDSOR, CT – Have you found that cloth or surgical mask slipping off your face? A new Connecticut startup company believes they have a solution.
Connecticut Biotech believes its 3D-printed mask frame sold for around $39 will be more than a necessary accessory.
“It’s something that’s simple that works,” Don Vaccaro, CEO of Connecticut Biotech, said.
He said everyone knows that masks are an important way to curtail the spread of the virus, but that wasn’t a widely accepted idea when Dr. Cato Laurencin of the University of Connecticut and a group of graduate students first pitched the idea.
