Designs in Development

The OU Covid-19 Task Force consists of faculty, staff and student specialists across the University's spectrum of knowledge and expertise. With our foundation of technical skill and resources, we are developing new and adapting old equipment with rapid manufacturing techniques; shoring up the Oklahoma medical community's relief efforts. The personal protective and mitigation equipment listed below are currently being tested with OU Health Science Center leaders and frontline medical professionals to ensure safety and effectiveness. 

As these designs are approved they will be listed, along with their instructions, in the Products page.
