The pandemic continues to affect all areas of our environment as we do our best to adapt more and more to the changes it brings. And those who have had to adjust the most for security reasons are public health workers.

On this occasion, to exclude the risk of possible infection by the Mexican company COVID-19 Medical XE It has developed special inflatable suits so that paramedical staff can treat patients with the virus without having to wear other types of biological protective equipment.

“We wanted it to be completely hermetic. That was the first detail that interested us. At the same time, we solved other problems, including the heat and temperature in the summer sun,” said Fernando Avilés, director of the company, about the digital medium RT.

The suit contains a device that supplies the interior with fresh air and a sensor that regulates the air pressure. “The temperature is very important because employees think better when they feel relaxed and cool,” says Avilés.

The battery it supports offers eight hours of autonomy, although it is mentioned that it can also be connected to an electrical network. Even if the suit breaks, the air compensator is responsible for regulating this imbalance and continuing to supply air so that it does not deflate and can continue to work until the problem is resolved.

It was not originally thought to be massively developed, but after seeing success with its own staff, the opportunity to bring it to market is huge, so any public health worker can have access to it.

This is not the first time that XE Médica has developed innovations in the safe treatment of patients with COVID-19, having previously launched their safe capsule for the transportation of people with the virus who have had one Technology works that is similar to that of the suit. .
