Description: The team designed a patient isolation and transportation system that transports people infected with highly contagious diseases from the field to strategic biocontainment facilities distributed around the world. While offering the necessary medical procedures and equipment, the transportation system keeps the patient in a sealed, isolated environment to prevent spread of the infectious disease, such as those caused by Flavivirus, Ebola and Lassa viruses. The system can be transported by ground and air to reach, secure, isolate and transport patients. It also complies with military and federal standards for withstanding various field uses and transport conditions, such as humidity, temperature, drop, shock and vibration.
