Our healthcare professionals are having trouble communicating with colleagues who are in isolation areas treating infected patients.
1. Problem identified
We have health professionals trying to find a way to talk to colleagues in isolation since this communication is hampered by numerous doors and isolation suits to prevent contagion.
2. Solutions being studied
We are looking for simple solutions to help you with this communication. The project is already underway and here are some ideas already tested / studied:
Baby intercoms - Not feasable
Pros - Hands free Cons - Unilateral
Motorbikes halmmet microphone - Not feasable
Pros - Bilateral Cons - When removing the suit, which is a rigorous process to ensure non-contagion, the wires and apparatus inside the suit could compromise this process.
Speakers in meeting rooms - In progress
Pros - Bilateral Cons -
