408 Aerosol Box
A Flatpack Polycarbonate Aerosol Box
The Model No. Aerosol Box design is adapted to US-sized beds and people with feedback from testing at local hospitals. The box can be customized to fit specific hospital needs and is constructed from a single material, using a single automated tool.
The units are made from clear polycarbonate and easy to disinfect. The box is placed between patient and medical personnel during the intubation process, which is a high-risk procedure for doctors because of the likelihood of being directly exposed to the virus. Up until the current emergency, hospital staff could use fully-ventilated protective suits; today those are in very short supply.

Leveraging a design from Doctor Hsien Yung Lai, the product we’re building is very similar but with design changes requested by the staff at our SF Bay Area hospitals.
The Model No. Aerosol Box design is adapted to US-sized beds. The box can be customized to fit specific hospital needs and is constructed from a single material, using a single automated tool.This manufacturing process limits both the amount of time, and the number of hands needed in manufacturing. The units are made from clear polycarbonate and easy to disinfect. Shipped flat, it can be assembled by anyone without the need for tools or adhesive. The box can be just as easily disassembled for cleaning and disinfecting before being used on the next patient. In addition, a disposable drape can be attached to provide a partial negative pressure environment.
