3D Printed Reusable Respirator
The coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic has now been recognized as the most difficult global health crisis of our time and the greatest challenge we have faced since World War Two. Personal protective equipment (PPE) is the first line of defence for safeguarding the people during COVID 19. PPE shortages are currently posing a tremendous challenge to the healthcare system because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Healthcare facilities are having difficulty accessing the needed PPE and are having to identify alternate ways to provide patient care. To overcome shortage of respirators in our country AKGEC FABLAB decided to come up and develop a low cost yet environmental friendly and reusable Respirator using 3D printing FDM Technology.
