The Shilma mask has been tested by the National Institute for Laser, Plasma and Radiation Physics, Bucharest, Romania, Laboratory of Solid-State Quantum Electronics using a schlieren interferometer built by Dr. Ciprian Dumitrache (Senior Researcher, CSIII).

The schlieren visualization technique enables the visualization of transparent phenomena (such as human breath or cough) in a non-invasive manner purely due to changes in the index of refraction of the media.

Why to wear a Shilma mask during coronavirus pandemic

With the outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 virus, the spread of airborne pathogens has become a great concern because of its potential impact, hence the need to wear a Shilma mask.

Surgical masks, also known as face masks, are intended to be worn by health professionals during healthcare procedures. They are designed to prevent infections in patients and treating personnel by catching bacteria shed in liquid droplets and aerosols from the wearer's mouth and nose on exhalation, coughing or sneezing. They are not designed to protect the wearer from breathing in airborne bacteria or viruses whose particles are smaller.
