Researchers have observed how lithium ions flow through a battery interface, which could help engineers optimize the material’s design.
MIT engineers have designed a nanotube-based sensor that can detect COVID-19 without any antibody and could be used for other pandemic, improving worker health.
Engineers at MIT and Harvard University have designed a small tabletop device that can detect COVID-19 from a saliva sample in about an hour.
The reusable mask includes a heated copper mesh powered by a battery and surrounded by insulating neoprene, which could help health care professionals and in other situations where social distancing is difficult.
Robots can remotely measure patients' vital signs, which could reduce health care workers’ exposure to the COVID-19 virus.
Researchers at MIT and Brigham and Women’s Hospital have designed a silicone rubber face mask that they believe could stop viral particles as effectively as N95 masks.
MIT engineers have proposed a suggested design could make it easier to divide air flow for COVID-19 patients in emergencies when no other options are available.
