Solutions Innovantes pour combattre COVID-19

CoronaVirus Fight
  • Deadline: 12.04.2020

The original project from The French Ministry of Defense has set the deadline for the 12th of April 2020. However, sooner we generate the solutions, earlier this war may end. Any of our distribution may provide significant help. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

Hypios CI

Dans un contexte planétaire cataclysmique, Hypios Ci s'efforce, avec ses algorithmes et sa communauté d'experts, de participer à l'effort général afin de trouver des solutions pour juguler cette pandémie, véritable fléau sanitaire et préfiguration d'une crise économique.

L'échelle n'en est pas nationale. Nous subissons une guerre mondiale sans précédent qu'inflige à l'humanité l'ère de la mondialisation. Compte tenu d'une telle déflagration, le recueil, le partage et l'indispensable confrontation des informations constituent notre seule chance de gagner. En tant qu'entreprise d'innovations bénéficiant de contacts permanents avec des experts dans divers domaines et sur tous les continents, nous, Hypios, vous invitons à coopérer avec nous en partageant des données vérifiées, des ressources, des expériences et des suggestions concernant les éléments énumérés ci-dessous.

Le temps nous presse. Il s'agit de relever, en l'occurrence, un défi littéralement hors du commun, lequel requiert une synergie, susceptible de mobiliser les données, les compétences et les moyens. Le véritable remède à cette pandémie n'est pas l'isolement, mais la coopération.

Jean-Christophe, CEO

In the context of the crisis that is occupying the entire planet, Hypios is trying with its means to participate in the general effort to find possible solutions to curb this pandemic which is a health scourge, coupled with an economic crisis.*

This is not just about any country. This is an unprecedented global war! This pandemic is a common challenge faced by mankind in the age of globalization. At this moment, sharing and integrating information is our only chance to win. As an innovation company which has contacts with experts in various fields, we Hypios invite you to cooperate with us by sharing information, resources, experiences, and suggestions regarding the items listed below. We must declare that this is not a typical challenge with rewards we usually organize, but a special event means to group all the capable people to fight in this war together. The real remedy for this pandemic is not isolation, but cooperation! 

The French Ministry of Defense has published a call for tenders which allows us to structure the needs into several categories.

For each of these categories, this document has identified possible responses and companies likely to offer the most suitable solutions; we will contact these companies to submit this call for tenders. 

This article is not perfect, it is obviously not exhaustive, especially at this stage, and it will be updated according to the information we receive.

The objective for us is to ensure that this call for tenders is relayed as much as possible and, using our tools, to identify the companies likely to respond.

Who we are: Hypios CrowdInnovation is a French company that helps corporations meet specific R&D needs with our unique approach to open-problem solving.

1.Individual or collective protection, carers and populations (eg masks, “makeshift hygiaphones”, innovative concepts of protection, barriers, recycling techniques, Do It Yourself, etc.)

Possible solutions

1.1  Sperian ‘Honeywell’  Molded Respirator

1.2 Japanese recycled masks

Facing the problem of a shortage of masks in Japan, two Japanese companies came up with a new recycled mask to prevent new coronaviruses. Unlike traditional masks, the main raw material is ” Echizen Washi” which is a traditional Japanese paper.

This mask was developed by Fine mode, Echizen Sewing Company, and Kamiwashou Ltd (石川製紙株式会社). It can be used repeatedly by replacing the paper mask pad with a deodorizing effect in the cloth mask. Kamiwashou Ltd has previously applied for a patent for this special Japanese paper and used it as a raw material to produce deodorizing pads.

This cloth mask uses polyester fiber on the outside, skin-friendly organic cotton on the inside, and a paper mask pad made of iodine anion exchange resin in the middle. This resin not only has the deodorizing ability but also has an antibacterial effect.
