University Hospitals is using a new protective tool to conduct COVID-19 tests.
The hospital system’s innovation department, UH Ventures, partnered with the Manufacturing Advocacy and Growth Network (MAGNET) to design and develop innovative COVID-19 testing booths. Workers administer the tests through arms-length gloves attached to a barrier on the booth.
This could speed up the testing process, as the workers no longer need to change personal protective equipment in between each test.
