Valencia, Spain

The Biomechanics Institute of Valencia (IBV) has participated in the definition of the new Spanish specification for reusable hygienic masks for adults and children.

This new specification provides manufacturers with clear requirements for the manufacture of reusable masks. It has been necessary to generate anthropometric dimensions of the face of the child population that would allow adult masks to be scaled to the dimensions of children's faces.

These are dimensions that are not available in conventional anthropometric tables. The definition of the sizes has been possible thanks to the use of the 3D databases processed by IBV.
