Producing Face Shields that Save Lives
Our mission, as a collective group of professionals, hobbyists, and students alike, is to aid our healthcare heroes by providing them with alternative options for personal protective equipment.
Medical professionals are in the danger zone, saving people one day at a time. Unfortunately, due to the widespread contamination issues caused by the seemingly unstoppable Coronavirus, PPE (personal protective equipment) is short in supply.
Why are masks important?
Currently, due to short supplies of N95 masks, many medical professionals are forced to reuse them for a week or until they become visibly soiled. This dramatically increases their chances of contracting coronavirus.
When someone coughs on a medical professional’s face, the virus can land on their mask. 3D printed face shields prolong the life of the masks by preventing the virus from getting on the mask.
