Helpful Engineering is an international, open-source community incubator focused on mobilizing people to help solve the Covid-19 pandemic and other critical issues. With thousands of volunteers worldwide, we support projects through innovations in engineering, community resources, software, and manufacturing.
Most of the projects are focused on finding solutions to fix the lack of products used by healthcare professionals, including hardware and software, but also non-technical products like surgical masks.
We have engineers and doctors all around the world who are producing ventilators, protective equipment, websites, and systems to organize volunteers to assist their communities and medical workers. They are making heroic efforts to produce products in time to help the outbreak.

The Universal Citizen Protection Device (UCPD) aims to keep the virus out of eyes, nose and mouth (and in, when worn by a carrier) with a 99%+ reliability. It can get people back to work and save lives. Our goal is to make it more effective and cheaper than a N95 mask on a per use basis. It's reusable and can be worn for 8 hours.
The Universal Citizen Protection Device (UCPD) is a Highlighted project at HelpfulEngineering.org. We are trying to build a UV based filter less PPE that could keep the virus out of eyes, nose and mouth (and in, when worn by a carrier) with a 99%+ reliability. The heart of the device would be a concealed UV Chamber that decontaminates all air going in to the PPE. Our goal is to build this as a reusable device that costs less than $100 and can be worn for 8 hours. We have received a lot of positive feedback and strong Interest from clinicians and businesses.
As we build our website out, we are looking for a content specialist to help with the website, pitch and all content related activity on the project.

Helpful Engineering is an international, open source community incubator focused on mobilizing people to help solve the Covid-19 pandemic and other critical issues. With thousands of volunteers worldwide, we support projects through innovations in engineering, community resources, software, and manufacturing.
Helpful Engineering is a 3,400 strong volunteer-run nonprofit incubator organization, with engineers, scientists, and doctors around the world dedicated to helping the world address the COVID-19 pandemic. Relying on the resourcefulness and grit of our members, we work to design innovative ways to fight the virus that causes this disease. We have partnered with medical professionals to know what would help them the most in this crisis, rapidly trying to design and arrange the production of pragmatic devices to move life-saving air, extend existing tools, or organize volunteers on the ground to bolster medical workers. The need is critical. Important but complex rules usually make these products unavailable, if unburdened, we can make them available now.
