WMU professors use box design to protect medical workers against COVID-19
Western Michigan University professors had implemented a new take on personal protective equipment for those working to fight the coronavirus disease 2019, or COVID-19.
WWMT reports they created an acrylic cube, to act as an extra layer of protection for medical workers, and tested it out at WMU’s Sindecuse Health Center. He said medical staff could slide the box over a patient’s head and shoulders to protect themselves during procedures where tubes need to be inserted into the patient’s body.
