During the recent pandemic…

More than 115,000 health and care workers made the ultimate sacrifice doing what they love. Hundreds of thousands of first responders and healthcare workers answered their call to duty, not knowing whether the next patient’s life they were about to save could cost them their own.

A nurse with a mission…

While in nursing school during the Covid-19 pandemic, I saw the exhaustion and fear experienced by healthcare professionals and shared a deep sadness at the loss of so many lives. Traditional PPE had become scarce and only offered a single layer of protection against this deadly virus.

“I wanted to find a way to offer increased protection to those providing life-saving care.”

The BIANCA Box is born…

A self-sustaining, self-contained, and amazingly agile protective physical barrier with active HEPA filtration, the BIANCA Box helps protect healthcare professionals from a patient’s potentially-infectious aerosolized droplet particles. The box provides a layer of protection in addition to the necessary personal protective equipment (PPE).

Growing concerns for the global spread of respiratory pathogens have existed prior to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
