We present a technology-garment co-designed smart mask concept, Masquare or Masque2, to enable the daily face garments with cardio-respiratory health monitoring functions, through scientifically established results. Masquare can be used in various scenarios where both protection against harmful elements and continuous health status monitoring can benefit the user. Our design approach thoroughly considers the textile and garment integration to combine smart sensing technologies inside a face mask while keeping its traditional air filtering functions, all at the same time not deviating from the already generally accepted mask appearance.
