Dean of the Wallace H. Coulter School of Engineering and Tony Collins Professor of Innovative Engineering Culture Bill Jemison and Supervisor of Technical Support Services Jacob Weller have been busy helping to modify the supply of positive air pressure respirators (PAPRs) at Canton-Potsdam Hospital (CPH) and across the St. Lawrence Health System.

PAPRs are important personal protective equipment devices that help protect health care providers from COVID-19 while interacting with patients.  

Since the hospitals need specialized batteries or chargers that are in short supply to continuously run all of their PAPRs while they battle COVID-19, Jemison and Weller have modified 29 PAPRs to operate on batteries that are readily available.  See more about how the partnership started and the technology innovation process in this video.
