The recent coronavirus outbreak worldwide created an emergency involving all countries In order to help fight the virus one of the most important early activities is to detect potential carriers through the body temperature monitoring, by individuating those with body temperatures higher than 37.5C.

In order to do a mass screening in short time and at a distance we are proposing the following system:

-A carrier
In our case an unmanned platform, a small airship (15/20mt) that can fly permsnently powered by a PV film to generate solar energy for its electric engines during the day and producing hydrogen for night utilization through a fuel cell system

-A sensor
A powerful infrared sensor, similar to those utilized in airports ...

A single-handle water faucet comprises a hollow base which mounts on the top-back portion of a sink, a valve assembly, a handle for controlling the flow rate of water and the temperature mix of water, a spout securely attached to the valve assembly and extending upwardly from the top end of the valve assembly, and a nozzle for discharging water. The handle is positioned below the nozzle so that the water discharged from the nozzle can be directed to the handle and sprayed onto the handle by hand in order to facilitate the cleaning of the handle during a handwash session. In one embodiment of the invention, the handle is axially and longitudinally rotatable. In another embodiment of the ...

The cost of hospital ventilators has become cost prohibitive during our present Corona virus epIdemiic as hospitals, states, and countries compete to buy them from the limited supply available in todays’s market place. A safe emergency replacement for ventilators is here suggested. A compressor and accumulator feeds pressurized filtered oxygen or air to a multi electro-pneumatic valve array. A computer controller controls the variable sized opening of each valve controlling each valve’s own variable volume, pressure, and flow rate of oxygen. Oxygen is driven through an ultraviolet sterilizer then distributing the oxygen to many patient masks. An electro-pneumatic valve, as distinguished from, but very similar to, an electro-fluidic valve, can not only turn on the flow of a gas, ...

Capsule Vaccine is a simple, disposable vaccine syringe designed initially for the people of Africa. The biggest feature of this vaccine syringe is that it is simple and convenient to operate. Users can make their own injections, which no longer require a large number of professional medical staff to participate, and can effectively save human resources. The disposable and safe syringe also can reduce the risk of medical infection.This vaccine syringe is convenient and hygienic. The location and population are not limited, which will help to improve the prevalence of vaccines and medical conditions in depressed areas such as ...

Elinfect is designed to force the vaccine syringe to become disposable so as to completely eliminate the infection caused by repeated use of the syringe. Therefore, two protrusions are added to the bottom of the syringe. When the syringe is pushed to the bottom, the protrusions on both sides limit the extraction of the piston, making the syringe unusable.

More details on how it works look at the second ...

An Outline Mitigating the Effects of Economic Competition on Homeless Mothers

Abstract:
The “Maternal Cooperative” is an effort to better support high risk single homeless mothers and infants in the first few years of bonding and development. This effort is based on creating a new understanding of the origins and adverse effects of individual level economic competition that undermines the general stability of these particular mothers. With this understanding we move to develop a short-term solution that fully supports these mothers and infants during this very critical financial and infant bonding phase.

Premise:
‘Economic Competition’ is the competition for money and resources. In this context we focus on the competition over limited funds and resources on an individual ...
