Decontamination and Reuse of N95 Face Mask

The lack of crucial protective devices puts health care workers at increased risk of infection by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes the COVID-19 disease.
On March 31, 2020, the CDC released Crisis Standards of Care Recommendations for N95 Decontamination.

Face Shields

Face shields are personal protective equipment devices that are used for protection of the facial area and associated mucous membranes (eyes, nose, mouth) from splashes, sprays, and spatter of body fluids. Venture Center has assembled a team to design a face shield using very economic materials and which is suitable for scalable manufacturing processes.

Open Source Ventilators

A ventilator is a machine designed to provide mechanical ventilation by moving breathable air into and out of the lungs, to deliver breaths to a patient who is physically unable to breathe, or breathing insufficiently.

Alcohol Based Handrubs

To help countries and health-care facilities to achieve system change and adopt alcohol-based handrubs as the gold standard for hand hygiene in health care, WHO has identified formulations for their local preparation. Logistic, economic, safety, and cultural and religious factors have all been carefully considered by WHO before recommending such formulations for use worldwide.


IR Thermometer

Make your own IR thermometer using readily available modules. Mobile phone or Power banks can be used as a power source.
