Effectof face covering functional design on cardio pulmonaryresponses and athletic performance

Virus transmission from one person to the next is heightened during physical activity and team and given the unique circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for face coverings have exploded in all sectors of society. This project investigates Evolution Sports and Athletic Gear’s sports face covering prototype to evaluate the performance of these face coverings, alongside how athletes perceive both the breathability and comfortability of the mask prototype(s). The face covering intends to complement sports activities while continuing to reduce the risk of virus during activity and in close quarters (sidelines or spectating).
