Modification of Stryker T5TM and Stryker Flyte® Personal Protection Surgical Helmets to Function as Powered Air-Purifying Respirators
Since the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) outbreak, health-care workers (HCWs) have had to create personal protective equipment (PPE) due to the worldwide demand and thus ensuing shortage.
