Vision
Project:
Respirator

Keurig B70 force-demultiplying


lever system replaces traditional
strap harness

Project about combining


initially unrelated
technologies in a unique,
but practical way

Latch Harness
System
Simplifies donning process to single motion, reducing time
and chance of error
Force-demultiplying lever system maximizes force applied
by latch

Donning Process

Press mask against face so


as to create seal

Patric Laub | Design Portfolio

Still holding mask, pull lever


back until latch is snuggly
fastened against back of
head

Depress toggle button at


lever base to activate
locking mechanism and
avoid accidental release
