Connected Units for Respiratory Ailments

Page last modified
April 11 2024

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Consolidated Contractors Company designed and build its own CURA (Connected Units for Respiratory Ailments), an opensource project aimed at capacity building in intensive-care units (ICU). CURA aims to convert shipping containers into plug-in Intensive-Care Unit Pods for the COVID-19 pandemic. The units would be as fast to mount as a hospital tent, but as safe as an isolation ward, thanks to biocontainment and negative pressure. CCC CURA aims to support & improve the efficiency of existing solutions in the design of field hospitals, tailoring them to the current pandemic.
