Police Riot Shield Sparks Idea for New Ebola Shield

Some features are missing from the currently-approved CDC’S Ebola suits; confidence in safety, comfort for the long days, and a practical way to put on and take off the suit in a few minutes.

Also missing is a safety shield through which the healthcare worker and patient can share some reassuring smiles.

Larry McMurray, inventor, watched the Ebola crisis unfold like the rest of us. Medical personal, working with the victims, also want to protect themselves, so they wear the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). They rely heavily on it and strict protocols for their safety. Varying or skipping a protocol step is not an option.

However, the amount of time it takes to put on the protective equipment, with all the protocol, almost equals the amount of time the worker can remain inside it.

McMurray knew he could come up with something better than what is being used. After watching the Ebola crisis unfold in October, the very next TV news story showed police donning riot gear. It dawned on him, “Why not have a shield to cover the whole front of a person; face, neck, and chest?” The Level4Suit evolved from there.

The innovative design addresses all the current suit shortfalls; safety while removing it, only two pieces, and extra-wide arm sleeve which allows the wearers to pull their arms inside the suit to safely access things like a water bottle or cell phone inside the suit. The prototype has many more unique features for safety, comfort, and function. It even has an option to safely use a stethoscope.
