AMufacture has launched The Ear Protector, designed to make face masks more comfortable for people working in public-facing businesses. 

The Ear Protector sits on the back of the head and hooks onto face mask strings, pulling them backwards and away from the ears, thereby relieving pressure and stopping chafing. 

The product was designed by AMufacture's Chief Operating Officer, William Howden, a former Olympic sailor who competed in the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. He said: "Early in the pandemic, it became apparent to us that there was a serious need to address an unresolved problem with face masks – people were really beginning to suffer and were getting distracted from their work."

The Ear Protector is sterilisable in a dishwasher. It is also recyclable when it reaches the end of its life.

The Ear Protectors cost fifty pence each, for orders of two hundred. Contact the company direct for lower volume pricing.
