Project summary

Implementation of an innovative re-usable respirator in healthcare for Pandemic.

What is the issue?

During the last SARS epidemic 30% of healthcare workers contracted the disease. This project aims to improve the adoption of an innovative re-useable respirator (CleanSpace) in acute care settings. Due to the urgency and strong global support, this project has the potential to accelerate adoption to positively impact the protection for healthcare workers at risk of deadly air bourne hazards in Australia and globally.

There are major challenges with implementing new Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in healthcare environments.

What does the technology aim to do?

CleanSpace Technology is a Sydney based company, founded by biomedical engineers from Resmed that specialise in design and manufacture of the next generation in respiratory protection equipment.

The company is developing a range of respirators for healthcare workers at risk of airbourne biohazards such as influenza, tuberculosis, measles and emerging pathogens responsible for recent global pandemics (MERS, SARS and Ebola). CleanSpace Halo is the world’s first respirator specifically designed for healthcare workers. CleanSpace has attracted significant global engagement in both pandemic preparedness and routine patient care. The Company now has collaborations with leading teaching hospitals and healthcare providers.
