Innovation in extremis: creating the AerosolShield

On 27th March 2020, Matthew spoke with  Dr. Egidio Da Silva and learned of the high risk of CoVID-19 infection run by frontline healthcare staff. Within six days, Matthew had assembled a team of experts, designed, prototyped, tested and launched the AerosolShield; a miniature isolation tent that forms a physical barrier between the patient and carers, preventing infectious droplets from reaching the personal protective equipment of clinicians and other frontline staff. The AerosolShield received its first order on Day 7 and since this time has protected more than an estimated 5000 NHS staff during the CoVID-19 crisis. In August 2020, the AerosolShield was named one of the “Ten innovations in the fight against COVID-19 by the Times Raconteur Future of Healthcare" report. For more information, see aerosolshield.com
