An improved intubation box to help hospitals around the world provide a safer environment for life-saving intubation procedures, available to all via an open source platform.  Rapid-response prototyping that allows PPE-production projects to move from idea to mass manufacture-able design in days, instead of years. The Case School of Engineering has quickly mobilized across multiple fronts to be a resource to those in our community fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. Our Sears think[box] team is leading emergency-response initiatives with campus partners, local hospitals, entrepreneurs and manufacturing facilities to develop products to keep our frontline workers safe. 

Our faculty are joining in these efforts by creating real-time data solutions to map the pandemic, engaging in community hackathons to find technology solutions to slow the spread of the virus, and exploring ways to translate their existing research projects to help improve diagnostic capabilities. Our students are finding ways to extend the reach of the Case School of Engineering by contributing their engineering expertise to efforts in their own hometowns.
