We are raising funds to provide 3D printed 500 Face Shields initially to Medical Workers, Police Officers, Health Care Workers, Grocery Store Workers, Gas Station Employees etc. by 30th of April 2020. We are already printing over 100 pieces/day and are working hard to increase our production.
Due to the worldwide spread of the pandemic (COVID-19), Medical Workers, Police Officers, Health Care Workers, Grocery Store Workers, Gas Station Employees are most exposed to Covid19 virus, as they are stepping outside every day for our safety and fulfilling our basic requirements. They do wear face mask but in absence of face shield, a major area of their face is exposed to the virus which may lead to infection through mucous membranes – eyes, nose and mouth. Also, due to the huge shortage amidst this lockdown period, we came up with an innovative Face Shield Design that can be used by Frontline Heroes.
Technical specifications, features and benefits of the Face shield-
1. Breathable Plastic Support at forehead provides comfortable wear.
2. Very light to wear. Weight < 60 grams.
3. Made up of PLA Biodegradable Material.
4. No smells, Lightweight, Healthy breathable.
5. Elastic Strap with size adjustment.
6. It provides ventilation on the top to prevent 'Visor Fogging'.
7. Can be washed/sanitized and reused.
8. Manufactured through 4 Stages Sterilization including Disinfectant Dip in Final Stage.
Cost of each Face Shield = INR 130/-
Total Cost = 500 x 130 = INR 65,000/-
Fundraiser Goal = INR 65,000/-
