BreathTech-S³ is the latest addition to the list of innovations by SLINTEC, a low cost, ultra-thin and easily attachable respiratory monitoring smart sensor that has been developed in collaboration with CirQ Labs; another high-tech innovation hub specializing in healthcare solutions. SLINTEC is collaborating with Hirdaramani Group recently in order to commercialize the BreathTech-S³ mask sensor. 

Hirdaramani Group is a leading global manufacturer providing integrated apparel design, production and distribution solutions to premium international brands. The Hirdaramani Group manufactures Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) for the European Union and North American markets, which includes face masks. Incorporating this sensor to a face mask will create a value-added product where the smart mask ensures the safety of the users.

This is the first collaboration between the two organizations on PPEs, and marks the very first high-tech value addition to face masks undertaken by a Sri Lankan apparel manufacturer.
