Amrita Engineering Students Develops Low-Cost Face Masks to Fight Against Covid-19

Making and using protective masks is a great way to fight against Covid-19 or Coronavirus pandemic. A group of three students named Raj Praveen, Venkadasubramaniyan and Harisudhan pursuing Mechanical Engineering from Amrita School of Engineering, Coimbatore has developed face masks for fighting against the Covid-19.

This mask is reusable and the filtering element can be changed as needed. This device can be used in varying places by only changing the filtering element, with any simple piece of cloth a common man be benefited and this same mask with an advanced filtering element. Doctors can be benefited as this provides an integrated foolproof system that protects the user from exposure to microbes through mucus-filled regions of nostrils, mouth and eyes.

“We understood the scarcity of 3ply and n95 masks in the country, when the Prime minister told the people to use homemade masks. Following our chancellor Amma’s path of wisdom, we were keen to have this reusable mask as cheaper as possible so that, the poor and needy can benefit from it”- says Raj Praveen.

“This project wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our Dean, Dr. Sasangan Ramanathan, and our department chairperson Dr. Thirumalini. We look forward to working with them until these devices reach every human in need”-he added.
