Kenyan Scientists Developing 3D Masks for COVID-19

Greetings Good People,

I saw some interesting news coming out of the continent and had to share. The following information is from Africa News.

Kenyan scientists and engineers are seeking solutions for the COVID-19 pandemic by way of 3D masks. A scientist from a 3D printing company in Nairobi and his partner, Neeval Shah, have put together a working design for 3D-printed face shields made up of a visor that clips onto a plastic sheet. Their team is also producing components that would allow ventilators to be used on more than one patient.

Ultra Red Technologies employee Mehul Shah advised the following:

“Normally all the competitors would be competing against each other are all coming together.”

“Our 3D printing network, we have actually all collaborated, all sharing one design, on all one costing method, and we are all producing the same thing so common goal is quite powerful here.”

I will be on the lookout for further updates. To check out the full article, click here. If you have any additional information, feel free to comment below.

Until Next Time…
