The Art & Science of Amazing Protection: Symbols

Protects dentists, doctors, surgeons and healthcare professionals, as well as patients, from contagion, and simultaneously provides comfort and dexterity in usage.

Patient Care


Provides all-round protection to nurses and healthcare providers in healthcare facilities, as well as to caregivers working in nursing-homes.
