MIT researchers have developed a sensor to make it much easier to ensure a good face mask fit and it can be applied to any kind of mask.
MIT researchers have developed a two-dimensional polymer that self-assembles into sheets and could be used as a lightweight, durable coating for car parts or as a building material for bridges or other structures.
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.
Engineers at MIT and Harvard have designed a prototype face mask that can diagnose the person wearing the mask with COVID-19 within about 90 minutes and can be used to detect other pathogens and chemicals.
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.
MIT researchers have developed a method using machine learning to reveal optimal growing conditions to maximize taste and other features.
