Made by employing a waterjet, the Aerosol Box is designed by Mahindra’s in-house team in Detroit, North America. It can be assembled in less than a minute and the assembly procedures can also be carried out at the hospital. Its leak-proof design protects the doctors and nurses from the cough droplets of the patients. The design of the face shields has been sourced from Mahindra’s partner Ford, and more than 1 lakh face shields and masks have already been made by the company.
