3D Printing’s protective gear for protection from coronavirus outbreak

Posted on

As reported by NPR News, Cornell and Boston University School of Medicine researchers, students, and professors have teamed up with community members to create about 400 face shields. Kuceyeski and Lee M. Wetzler delivered that first pallet of 3D-printed protective gear to two health care facilities Friday. The group’s first shipment contained a mix of headband-like clips that health care workers attach a plastic shield to, and the plastic visors themselves. The shields, in combination with an N-95 face mask, shelter medical workers from airborne droplets that can carry the coronavirus.
