Specially Designed Isolation Suit for Patients Infected With Ebola
Special isolation environment is arranged for victims of Ebola; even the staff has special suits designed to protect them from contracting the disease themselves.

Renfrew Group International, a product design firm, has designed an isolation suit for patients infected with Ebola. Usually, the medics who treat the patient wear a suit throughout the day to protect themselves from contacting with the infection.

The newly designed suit for the patients is sort of inside-out and is meant to keep the patient supplied with fresh air and fed through a tube, while the clinical staff can work safely and comfortably nearby. The suit is sturdy and has a built-in emesis tube that's connected to a bag that collects all the vomit.
