S-Band (Face Shields)
There is a shortage of medical facilities in Lagos State and Nigeria at large to manage the COVID-19 pandemic.
This leaves most health practitioners and the general public exposed to the spreading corona-virus. The United States has responded to this by encouraging 3D printing of some medical parts like ventilator valves, N95 masks and the likes.
We have therefore started production of local but efficient alternatives to curb the spread of the virus.
We designed and produced face shields that could be used by our health workers and the general public.
These face shields reduce the chances of contracting the virus by:
-Acting as a barrier from the virus spreading from potentially infected persons when they cough or sneeze,
-Stopping people from repeatedly touching their faces,
-Keeping health practitioners safe when helping patients
