Personal protective equipment (PPE) offers critical protection, but is a source of stress and discomfort, limiting wear-time to no more than 40-minutes and impacting the amount of care that can be provided for patients. In addition to this, lengthy infection control measures and complicated instructions leave no room for error, putting workers at risk.
Clinvue will be presenting at AusMedtech 2014, Australia’s premier medical technology conference.
