Researchers from the Monash Institute of Medical Engineering, in collaboration with clinicians from Monash Partners Academic Health Science Centre, are working to co-develop and test a number of medical technology solutions to help keep doctors and patients safe when dealing with COVID-19.
A recreational snorkel mask is currently being adapted and has been approved for clinical trials to help minimise the spread of
COVID-19 to health care workers and patients in the hospital setting.
The unique design of the snorkel mask will allow delivery of oxygen while simultaneously harnessing and filtering the air as it is exhaled to limit the spread of contaminated droplets.
