Novel Portable Airway Suction Device with Anti-Viral Coating. Multiple Sector Applications
Funding: R: Research › Award
"This is a revised and expanded proposal regarding the design and manufacture of a Laryngeal Suction Device used to remove blockage of airways in emergency situation. Two different versions of the device will be refined via a design optimisation and extensively experimental testing with preliminary prototype. More specifically 1) ‘The sports bottle’ – Re-Useable, gas powered venturi suction. TRL 5/6; 2) ‘The compact disposable’ – Utilises user’s breath to fill a bag that is then<br/>squeezed to produce positive pressure. This drives the venturi pipe. The<br/>collection bag is foldable until required. A non-return valve version for<br/>Battlefield Medics is possible too. TRL 3/4 "
