Openhardware electrified mosquito net to fight malaria (paludism)

Similar projects worth following
Malaria kills each year more than 400 000 people. Insecticide-treated nets had been really effective in decreasing the number of contamination, but mosquitos are developping a resistance against these chemicals.

Squitosplit is a mosquito net which detects if a mosquito has land on, and then shocks. The detection works with a capacitive technology.
The net is able to distinguish a human from a mosquito, avoiding shocking a human.

We are working with universities, NGO and companies to respond to local needs and to have feedbacks from experts.

We are unified in a non-profit. This project is openhardware/opensource.

The mosquito net is made of aluminium yarns and aramid yarns (Kevlar)

Thank you for your comment!

We are developping systems to limit current, so there is no risk!

Regular nets work, but are not totally proof, so isn't sufficient to fight against malaria.
