Winnipeg’s Price Industries is working on supplying a product that helps create a safe space for patients in places like hotel rooms , easing the pressure on health facilities across North America struggling to stay ahead of the COVID-19 health crisis.
The company’s fan filter unit can be used to draw air out of virtually any room, taking airborne virus with it and expelling it safely through a filter, either directly outside or through the building’s exhaust vent.
“You can basically wheel them into these patient rooms and within under 10 minutes you can convert that to a negative pressure isolation room,” said David Surminski, the manager of critical environments for Price Industries.
That can help keep airborne virus out of nursing stations and other key parts of hospitals, or rapidly converted buildings or even hotel rooms.
