Development of Airborne COVID-19 Isolation and Elimination Device

COVID-19 Research Area(s): Environment, Equipment & Technology Innovations

Dr. Li and his colleagues at UBC Okanagan will partner with Care Health Meditech Developments Inc. to develop an innovative device, Airborne Infection Isolation and Elimination Device (AIIED), which will enable safe collection and disposal of COVID-19 contaminated air in dental operations. Research focusing on the flow and droplet dynamics will be conducted at UBC Okanagan by performing both numerical simulations and experiments. Based on the research results, the design of AIIED will be developed.
