When fighting against COVID-19, doctors might be exposed to the infection when masks and protective suits are in shortage. As a solution, Plastique Fantastique has conceived the Mobile PPS, a pneumatic space where doctors can treat patients in a transparent protective space. The Mobile Personal Protective Space has constant positive air pressure, which means, the air flows only toward the outside of the space, not letting the virus coming inside. The clean air supply is guaranteed by a ventilator located outside or in an extra decontaminated space.
As a doctor steps into the Mobile PPS, they first enter an air lock area that keeps the air pressure high to enable the clinical staff to carry out disinfection procedures. Once inside the care unit, doctors can treat their patients according to their health condition. This 4 x 8-meter space, that can be combined with other modules, acts as their office, containing all the medical equipment. Between the shift, the care unit can be transformed into a relax area where the doctor can rest.
