Health care professionals asked for help in securing personal protective equipment (PPE) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our team used the library's 3D printer to create Prusa face mask headbands and chin straps for AMITA Health Medical Centers. We worked with Dr. Bonny Chen to determine which hospital-approved design would be of the best help to them. We ran the printer around the clock to create 244 headbands and 186 chin straps that helped make the masks they needed.
"Thank you so much for everything you have done for us; it is truly life-saving!," said Dr. Chen. The library's 3D printer was donated by the IPPL Foundation & Friends. If you would like to help us cover the cost of materials, donate here.
