In partnership with a Toledo-based hospital and 2-SCALE, Dana engineers designed and built prototypes for a patient enclosure to help treat patients infected with COVID-19.
After testing, the enclosure apparatus is now being produced in limited quantities by Dana to protect health care workers during procedures, specifically intubations and extubations.
The design was created with healthcare workers in the Toledo, Ohio area, but other hospitals may be interested in similar devices. If you are interested in building these and providing them to hospitals in your area, please download the resources on this page, and work with local suppliers to obtain the materials.
Use PETG or acrylics adhesives to secure the joints.
See how a medical professional would use the enclosure box while treating a patient.
While many of the items attached to this enclosure may be standard at hospitals, they may also be in short supply. The items this enclosure was designed with are:
Rubber incubator porthole
- Brand: RPI / Supplier: Boothmed.com / SKU: OMS052-X; or
- Brand: GE / Supplier: GE / Product Number: 6600-1249-500
