BANGKOK (NNT) - King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang. (KMITL) has showcased recent inventions by Thai researchers designed to help combat COVID-19, while revealing the concept to build world’s first hospital with a special focus on development of medical equipment.

 

KMITL’s Rector Suchatchavee Suwansawas, has revealed the outcomes of cooperation with the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation (MHESI) as well as other related government agencies and private firms, in developing and producing devices to help in the fight against COVID-19.

 

Three successful projects were showcased on this occasion, namely a portable ventilator for use in patient transport; a UVC sanitizing robot, and a symptom screening door which uses artificial intelligence to analyze the subject’s heat profile.
