Order your Shonaquip Respirator!

The masked world we now live in is incredibly challenging for people with disabilities, comorbidities and the elderly. Not being able to see the face of the person caring or working with you can be a source of great anxiety.

This is why we’ve developed the Shonaquip respirator which provides safe, cooling airflow in stressful humid environments, while the clear full-face visor allows the user to maintain a human connection with those around them, reducing fear, enabling lip-reading and reassuring facial expressions.… Continue reading

Barriers to inclusion – A case study: Swartland & Witzenberg regions, Western Cape, South Africa, September 2020

Read our Impact Team’s research article exploring the gap between policy and service delivery for families of children with disabilities.

The Shonaquip Respirator: Clean Air, Clear Face.

What is the Shonaquip Respirator?

The Shonaquip Respirator is a Powered Air-Purifying Respirator (PAPR) for front line medical personnel that delivers safe, clean filtered air from a battery powered respirator unit via breather tube to create a positive pressure inside a lightweight hood that can be comfortably worn for hours on end.

Our Campaign:

We are utilising crowdfunding through our BackaBuddy Campaign to make 20 ‘first edition’ units, fitted with a certified filter material to prevent viral and bacterial exposure. The funds raised will be used to cover cost of manufacture (no profit) and fund next steps of development – the 20 units will be donated to Frontline workers and people with disabilities or their carers in high risk situations.… Continue reading
