Israeli Hospital Pilots Virus-Neutralizing Sticker for Face Masks to Combat Coronavirus and Protect Health Care Workers

News Staff : Apr 3, 2020  ISRAEL21c.org

"We have a prototype and are building 100 of them. Once it is in medical use we will advise it to other hospitals because I think it is a crucial low-tech application that can help physicians." -Deputy Director General Dr. Tsvi Sheleg

The 3D-printed "Maya" sticker was developed at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology by a mechanical engineering team led by Prof. Eyal Zussman.

The sticker contains nanofibers that capture nanoparticles, and disinfectants believed capable of killing any viruses in those nanoparticles.

The Technion team worked in coordination with Prof. Samer Srouji, director of the medical center's Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department and Oral Medicine & Dentistry Institute; and in collaboration with the Directorate of Defense Research and Development of Israel's Ministry of Defense.

Israel's Ministry of Health has given initial approval for the 723-bed government-owned hospital to trial the unique sticker.

"This is a fast and available solution, using advanced technologies. We are excited to launch a pilot at the medical center to test adaptation of the sticker by the medical staff," said Srouji.

Dr. Masad Barhoum, general director of the Galilee Medical Center, said that if the Maya sticker meets expectations in protecting healthcare professionals against infection, the medical center will recommend it to other hospitals in Israel and abroad.

Deputy Director General Dr. Tsvi Sheleg tells ISRAEL21c that the hospital also devised a special transparent PVC box that better protects anesthesiologists when they intubate COVID-19 patients.

"We have a prototype and are building 100 of them. Once it is in medical use we will advise it to other hospitals because I think it is a crucial low-tech application that can help physicians." Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
