Healthcare PPE for the North West

Hi Guys,

As some of you will know we have been making visors/PPE for local healthcare professionals and people in need. Dee my wife is very close to the due date for our second child, so we have both been acutely aware of Covid-19. It's not much but if these visors make at least some difference to the staff who are actively working in higher risk areas then we are super glad to be able to help! 

I have been inundated with people asking if they can donate/help in anyway which is absolutely fantastic. I had been asking people to purchase the clear plastic for the visors or send filament. However i think its more organised to have this as a centralised place where donations can be taken.

We have been making a variety of models but the main one is the Verkstan model (link at the bottom). It's a Swedish model and has been widely welcomed and used in Europe as a very cost effective solution.

We have also been making elastic supports for the current masks the NHS provide to provide relief behind the ears as the elastic is cutting in through being worn constantly.

If anyone knows of any health care professionals who need visors or elastic supports please get them to get in touch OR if there are any other items that need printing then don't hesitate to ask.

We have also signed up to some other 3D print volunteer organisations but they are extremely busy. As the weeks progress it may be that we move everything over to them to help with a more organised/group method.

Thanks again for the support.

Max, Dee and Lola
