2. Reusable PPE: More research is needed on whether current types of single-use PPE materials can be replaced by reusable PPE materials that are compatible with autoclaves. Attached is the WHO specifications for PPE, and any new/modified materials would I assume need to meet these standards. Needed are gloves, aprons and gowns, surgical masks, respirators and face protectors in the form of glasses, goggles or face shields.
* Could Fab Labs develop reusable PPE made from materials compatible with autoclaves?
*Example from Nikhil*
At the fab lab I have been volunteering at, we have been giving a lot of thought towards design for autoclave usage. The shield I developed and presented on Tuesday, was entirely designed with this intention in mind.
Caveat for using autoclaves: It is an important caveat that for this outbreak of SARS-CoV-2, the use of an autoclave is a bit overkill - a few days of isolation will ensure safety from the virus, but that for future outbreaks, this requirement may be critical.
