Laboratories at UHN have partnered with medical programs to become hotbeds for the design, manufacturing and testing of medical grade personal protective equipment (PPE).
These initiatives are supporting frontline workers and the fight against COVID-19 by providing a locally manufactured and reliable supply of safety-tested protective equipment – including face shields, patient monitoring components and alternatives to disposable N95 masks.
The programs that are leading these efforts include Techna Institute's
Image Guided Discovery Lab (IGDL) and
Tele-Monitoring Program; as well as UHN's
The Lynn & Arnold Irwin Advanced Perioperative Imaging Lab (APIL), and the departments of Anesthesia& Pain Managementand Medical Engineering.
A key challenge of manufacturing medical equipment is the need for it to meet the highest safety standards. Tackling this issue requires multiple rounds of designing, prototyping and clinical validation.

The following innovative projects are being led to meet the increased demand for scarce resources:
