How the SHEMA97 Functional Active Mask came to be

HelmetFitting.com founder Dana Marquez started out sewing masks at home and at his office in Auburn, Alabama, at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. With the help of his wife, Liz, the two distributed masks to various places in the community including the local-area hospital.Inspired by the mask making, Marquez then had the idea to draw on his resources to create something greater. Marquez worked with the Atlanta-based North American Group and SHEMA, a South Korean company, to create the SHEMA97 mask.

“This is for helping people who have to wear a mask, like I do, all day, every day,” Marquez said. “The science behind it is pretty amazing. The idea was to find a mask that our student athletes and coaches are comfortable wearing.”
