The new inventions inspired by a pandemic


A new ventilator, a virus-killing snood and a hands-free door pull are just some of the innovations coming out of Wales to tackle coronavirus.  

Since the outbreak, doctors, scientists and designers have been working on ideas to stop the virus spreading.  The ventilator has already successfully treated a Covid-19 patient and has been backed by the Welsh Government.  Mass production of the snood-type mask is under way while a 3D design of the handle has been widely circulated.
