Design Features

  • Footprint sized for use with a typical hospital bed and commode in a U.S. hospital room
  • Clear thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and replaceable modular components compatible with decontamination and disposal methods
  • *Air Safety: Intergrated intake and HEPA exhaust filters, connected to the blower, enable secure air exchanges within hospital enclosures.
  • Patient access via the HugSuit and lean-in windows at head and side of bed
  • Equipment access via conduit panels for wires and tubing
  • Airlock pass-throughs enable the passage of procedural equipment and patient supplies into the encolsure while maintaining a containment barrier.

*Cylinder waste pass-through allows for the removal of accumulated waste from the enclosure while preserving the containment barrier.

Technical Specs



  • Design Specification Requirements / Operational Airflow = Device shall perform at least 12 air exchanges per hour
  • Performance is ~20 air exchanges/hour
  • HEPA (99.97% particulates @ 0.3μ)
  • Access via conduit panel for wires and tubing
  • Airlock pass-throughs

Model 1 In Action

Clinical simulation activities have been integral to the iterative design evolution of the ISTARI Model 1. Utilizing advanced simulation facilities at the UNMC Global Center for Health Security and engagement with Innovation Test Bed partner hospitals, diverse healthcare teams have provided valuable feedback to refine device features, optimize clinical and IPC utility, and improve patient safety and experience. A broad scope of medical interventions has been evaluated, including emergency and critical care procedures.

Model 1 In Action



ISTARI is designed to allow for the full spectrum of clinical care and is compatible with all transmission-based precautions. The units are compatible with standard medical utilities in a hospital room. It can be used in existing hospital rooms or in temporary surge spaces with portable utilities. See it in action…
