Automatic Hand Sanitizer

hand sanitizer

We A. M. Nilupul Nuwan Senevirathna and W. W. Kanchana Aruna Kumara Perera develop this invention. Our hands must be properly sterilized to protect against coronavirus. Also when using sanitizer bottles containing disinfectant liquid, contact with it can cause the spread of the disease. To solve that problem, we have developed an automated sanitizer. It can also be fitted to many existing sanitizer bottles. It is designed to be small in size, at a very low cost. When we close our hands to this Automatic Hand Sanitizer, it automatically senses our hands. This then it sprays sanitizer liquid into our hands. That way we can sterilize our hands well. It has a fluid volume controller and a fluid frequency controller. Once this device is fully charged, we can get sanitizer liquid many times.

Semi Automated Telepresence Robot

We are an engineering team and involving with this Semi Automated Telepresence Robot for Hospitals project based on the need of health sector during this hard COVID-19 period. Our team members are Sahan C. Ranasinghe / Anuruddha Tennakoon / Buddhika Marasinghe. We extend our gratitude and thank to SLIC for assisting financial support for the development of this invention and apply for the patent within one week.

Our invention is a semi automated telepresence robot for Indoor transportation for deliver meals, drugs, and garbage collection and for patient interview in covid-19 wards or suspect patients’ wards. In addition to that, this is suitable for manufacturing plants, warehouses. This robot can be used as a remote control or run on automated guided path. But you can override anytime. It has obstacle detection sensors, mechanical dampers to avoid collision. Also most importantly it has a camera and display for Video conferencing facility to communicate with patients. Health care staff can monitor or interview the patients and get the feedback about their symptoms immediately with less exposursity of medical staff to covid-19 patients.

Thank you very much SLIC team for your assistance and guidance.

Low-Cost Open Source Ventilator

We are an engineering team and involving with this open Source ventilator project based on the need of health sector during this hard COVID-19 period. Our team members are Sahan C. Ranasinghe / Kosala Jayasundara / Salinda Tennakoon / Anuruddha Tennakoon / Chathura Yapa Bandara / Thusitha Samarasekara and Buddhika Marasinghe. With the initial prototype, our team contacted SLIC and they assisted us by giving financial support for the development of this Open Source Ventilator and for manufacturing process within one week.

Our invention is to develop a low cost, easy to operate and reliable ventilator based on an open source project. This Open Lung Low Resource Ventilator is a quick-deployment ventilator that utilizes a bag valve mask (BVM), also known as an Ambu-bag, as a core component. Ambu-bags are mass-produced, certified, small, mechanically simple, and adaptable to both invasive tubing and masks. The OPEN LUNG ventilator will use micro-electronics to sense and control air pressure and flow, with the goal to enable semi-autonomous operation.

Benefits of this inventions are low cost in development, mass production due to less complexity, touchpoints use certified components, small and simple mechanical requirements, previous research and testing in this area, adaptable to both invasive tubing and masks and medical practitioners are familiar with the device.

Main features of this inventions are user-specified (breath/min, insp./exp ratio and tidal volume), assist control, positive end-expiratory pressure (peep), maximum pressure limiting, humidity exchange (built into the mask), infection control (by way of covering the unit in an easily cleaned enclosure) and limited dead-space.

Thank you very much SLIC team for your assistance and guidance.
