Re-Engineered Health Care Worker Suit
International Personnel Protection in partnership with Cornell University and Kappler
This re-engineered protective suit for health care workers is designed be more breathable while still providing leak-free barrier protection, improved hood design and easier doffing/removal. This partnership brings together top experts in personal protective equipment, leading researchers in materials science and a PPE manufacturer. The garment utilizes proven viral penetration resistance material that also offers high levels of moisture vapor transport for breathability. A miniature fan-based suit air exchange system is also being investigated as a possible feature. Other features offer customizability, such as booties compatible with various external footwear and multiple hood options that include a powered air-purifying respirator.
