This development is to address the current limitation in respiratory protection neck seal designs. The developed system will allow for a smart splitneck seal design that allows for donning versatility, improved comfort, and will provide feedback to the user regarding seal performance. Theapplication of smart technology will help balance comfort with protection in ensuring that a hermetic neck seal is maintained around the entirecircumference of the neck while concurrently ensuring the pressures at the neck are not excessive leading to discomfort.
