Inflatable shelters (rapidly deployable structures) can provide support for care setting.
- inflatable solution
- rapid deployment on site
- modular configurations
- military-grade (tested/approved) materials.
Large deployable air shelter for patients or different purposes.
safe supply unloading/ transfer
height profile might alleviate temperature concerns
each zone can be easily separated
modular design allows for different deployments of structures for the overall emergency response crew. This could be an office.
I've been researching potential equipment to deploy along with PPE suits. In my analysis, I thought of all these variables:
- PPE suit takes 1-2 hours to prep a person (and a sterile prep space)
- PPE suit only works for about 40min before person overheats
- Used PPE suit needs decontamination. No knowledge of re-use capability or decontamination facilities.
- No reliable electric grid
- Must withstand weather and be flexible deployment / airdrop.
