Abstract

A multi-sense system adapted for prevention of occupational diseases in a working environment is described, which comprises: - a protective facial mask, adapted for application in the front zone of a person's face, comprising nose and mouth areas, and comprising: - a temperature and humidity sensor (5, 6) adapted to be activated when the mask is worn, and adapted to provide time-related data concerning said activation as well as temperature and humidity values; - removable air filter elements (3, 4) applied to the front side parts of the mask; - inhalation (8) and exhalation (7) valves applied to the front zone of the mask, in front of the mouth, when the mask is worn; - elements for securing the mask to the face (2, 9, 10, 11, 12); - an electronic nose device (3) adapted to provide, when worn by the person, time-related data about the quality of the air in said working environment; - a breathing detection device, adapted to provide, when worn by the person, time-related data about the respiratory rate; - a data processing and displaying device, adapted to receive and store the data outputted by said protective facial mask, electronic nose device and breathing detection device, also adapted to process and display said data in order to determine a condition wherein said rotective facial mask needs to be worn.
