COVID-19 : Biohazard Destruction with Augmented Reality

COVID-19 : Biohazard Destruction with Augmented Reality

COVID-19 has demonstrated the importance of Biohazard Destruction or cleaning devices. The manipulation of highly contagious deceases like Coronavirus make a need to use other methods to handle processes with minimum contact. 

At the EGLAVATOR, I created a new way to connect and use a device like the Demolizer or other vendors that can destroy and clean medical equipment.   I discussed this patent before, but recently the entire application was published both in PCT (World) and United States. 

The main focus of the patent is the creation of an Augmented Reality (AR) interface to connect to an IOT-based device that can destroy, clean, and decontaminate equipment used during this pandemic times. 

The CDC states several types of decontamination processes, but the one that caught my interest is “Moist Heat,” which basically consist in raising the temperature to 60″ at 80% humidity and that will be sufficient to kill H1N1 and other viruses like COVID-19. 

Moist heat

Moist heat, consisting of 60°C and 80% RH caused minimal degradation in the filtration and fit performance of the tested FFRs [3, 9, 10]. Heimbuch et al. disinfected FFRs contaminated with H1N1 using moist heat, of 65°C and 85% RH, and achieved a minimal of 99.99% reduction in virus [14]. One limitation of the moist heat method is the uncertainty of the disinfection efficacy for various pathogens.

The way my invention works is as follows:

In the cases of Covid-19 biohazard destruction can be controlled from your phone. A mobile phone downloads the control application that connects to a cloud-based platform where all the devices are controlled. All devices that destroy needles or clean masks are IOT-capable (Internet of Things). All IOT functions are exposed in a secured way to the device that contains contaminated products.

The cloud-based platform as shown in FIG 2A, has all the data and information created using an IP Secured tunnel with the information stored on device. Both the application at your mobile phone and the cloud are hence communicating to obtain information from the decontamination process.

Augmented reality icons can be shown and displayed with information on where things are, stop the process, or remotely update a nurse or a technician to handle a contamination process.

Patent Filings United States and PCT

The patent was filed in the United States and PCT for world coverage potential. I think we will file US, Europe, and other countries like China.

The publication and more detailed description can be found here:

Usage

The number of utilization scenarios increases is mapped to devices that can clean but completely destroy “reds and sharps” at higher temperatures.

Usually, the process will enable using sensors and other tunneling techniques to handle other scenarios and detect other dangerous contaminants that could be generated during a process like this.

Licensing & Partnerships

We are looking for patents of people to license this technology, software, and even consulting to improve or adapt this innovation to fit your need.

In this presentation, you can find more information on how can we partner or license what we have;.
