COVID-19 Intubation Box

Protecting healthcare practitioners.

A simple piece of protective equipment that could make a difference in the fight against the outbreak. The New England Journal of Medicine has just published a video showing the effect of the intubation box.

In partnership with Klick Health and Italic Press, rapid localization (adjusting dimensions to match North American hospital beds and body sizes), prototyping, and distribution to Toronto area hospitals began within days. It is our hope to provide protection to physicians intubating patients across the Greater Toronto Area and North Eastern United States.
