Currently these systems are very expensive and we want an easy solution for poorer countries available now.
What it does
It provides clean filtered air into the face-mask. This stops any air trying to get in.. as it uses positive air pressure and is much safer than an N95 mask. Also it is re-useable
How I built it
Using information and parts I have sourced and 3d printed here, while being in isolation for the past 6 weeks :)
Challenges I ran into
Filter supplies Clean sterilisable parts medical staff awareness and supply
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
It works and is very cheap.
What I learned
That to make a better solution and save lives needs a team of smart people all focussed on the one goal.
What's next for Filtered Air - Pressurised Respirator
Building more and testing them in hospitals.
We started this one month ago after seeing Johnny's Awesome work on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oS6GA83nbds
