Pandemic Analytics provides Automated Space Planning
Social distancing norms for public venues, such as schools, lecture halls, and theaters, require organizations to revise their total capacity. Optimizing the number of persons that share a forum while ensuring their safety is an uphill task, especially when done manually. On the other hand, computational algorithms optimize space planning while saving time and minimizing human intervention. Startups utilize different visualization techniques to map a venue and find the optimal count, thus ensuring safety.
Pandemic Analytics is a US-based startup that helps determine the number of people that fit a space using social distancing and risk profiles for schools, entertainment venues, and more. The startup provides free and paid versions of their services, Rosner Model and RoomSafe, respectively. RoomSafe is customizable for complex room geometries and variable social distancing & spacing, from doors and walls. The startup also enables organizations to modify their settings as pandemic guidelines continue to change.
Medicavent Technologies produces Ventilators
The exponential rise in the number of COVID-infected patients places a burden on ventilator availability. The lack of ventilators forces physicians to make hard decisions about which patients receive life-support. Startups are developing scalable and cost-effective ventilators to lower the burden on hospitals and other care facilities.
Israeli startup Medicavent builds rapid development ventilators for intensive care units (ICU) and field conditions. The startup’s ventilator features a central control unit and a human-machine interface (HMI). Other components include a mixing bag, patient unit, and tubing to connect the main control unit. Medicavent’s ventilator design is scalable and cost-effective while meeting aviation and medical device standards, further ensuring patient safety.
Eon Biotechnology builds a Cloud-based Pandemic Management solution
Contact tracing is an important step when a new infectious disease surfaces. Finding a patient’s exposure network is difficult as people generally do not track their contacts and travel history with minute-to-minute details. Smartphones or dedicated hardware enable automated contact tracing and ensure safety. However, privacy remains a concern for many users. Startups are developing privacy-respecting solutions that constantly track users, as well as provide a risk profile, depending on their travel history.
Eon Biotechnology is a British startup offering an enterprise cloud solution for pandemic management and crisis response. The startup’s Vitality platform features a plug-and-play architecture for easy adoption. Vitality Pulse, Vitality X, and Vitality Dispenser are the startup’s intelligent rapid testing, contact tracing, and tracking solutions. Moreover, Vitality utilizes blockchain-based anti-counterfeit supply management tags to ensure traceability and security of the data.
Thrive Masks designs N-95 Type Compostable Masks
The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the global healthcare supply chain. Multiple production units meet the high demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) such as N-95 masks and gloves. However, environmental concerns regarding PPE disposal are growing. Startups are leveraging advances in material processing to build safe and environmentally-friendly alternatives for mass-produced medical supplies.
US-based startup Thrive Masks develops compostable N-95 type masks. The startup utilizes corn-based polylactic acid to make masks that decompose into water and carbon dioxide, within three months in commercial composting facilities. It also features four layers of protection from particulate matter and an inner wiper seal to avoid leakage. This ensures that users get an easier fit compared to the masks available in the market.
Global Plenitude offers Mobile Apps for Remote Healthcare
Direct patient-to-doctor interaction amid a pandemic increases the risk of infection for both parties. Even though critical medical conditions require specialized in-person physician support, remote consulting is an effective solution to reduce the spread of the virus. Remote healthcare services mainly help eliminate the risk of infection. Startups are developing readily integrable remote health and mobile health platforms that help doctors reach a higher number of patients safely.
Swedish startup Global Plenitude provides a dedicated mobile health app for patients from low-income backgrounds. The startup’s smartphone app, Line4Care, connects volunteering refugees, migrant nurses, or doctors with patients from poor socio-economic backgrounds. Hence, Line4Care delivers safe healthcare to patients who cannot afford it and also ensures they do not spread the disease.
