Description:

In an effort to fight the spread of Covid-19 epidemic, all frontliners need to wear various of personal protective equipment (PPE) as a shield to protect themselves against infection.

Caring for the problem of lack of PPE supplies in hospitals, the volunteer team of Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM) design a ‘’Boot Cover’ which works to reduce the risk of foot exposed to viruses that can be infected through blood, liquid or air containing biological hazard.

According to the project leader, Professor Madya Dr. Kamarul-Azhar Kamarudin a total of 50 Boot Cover was successfully produced within four days. Using only plastic material, rubber and adhesive tapes (masking tape), the sample is then tested first to ensure the level of durability. This “Boot Cover” created by Pasukan Solusi Jahitan UTHM using plastic material attract attention from Hospital Sultan Ismail and Hospital Sultanah Aminah, Johor Bahru.
