Medical workers and first responders in the World are short on the supply of N95 protective face masks and shields. These essential components of personal protective equipment (PPE) help safeguard clinicians from accidental droplets containing coronavirus as they tend to patients, work in labs, and assist at drive-through testing facilities. The coronavirus is more contagious than the flu, and it is critical that these first responders get the medical supplies they desperately deserve.
The COVID 19 outbreak has shown the W.H.O., the Governments, And the humans at large that however prepared we are it is alwaysless, and that we need to continuously work to upgrade and update our techniques and technology so that our fight back infrastructure is strong and efficient. We have seen countries like the USA, Italy etc. what they had to face for not being well prepared with the type of medical and social approach it needed. It is important that we prepare ourselves from the grassroots level with all medical requisites so that we need not face poor quality products at hiked prices.
The major problem faced by our medical staff is since they have to use a high protection (like N-95) that increases the treatment cost, secondly since there is a high demand for such PPE’s the is a shortage of such safety Equipment’s. keeping such serious issues unattended then it may direct us to a shortage of quality safety instruments which in turn will be a disastrous if thing go the wrong way.
In late 2019, a novel coronavirus emerged in China. Since then, it has rapidly spread throughout the world. This novel coronavirus is called SARS-CoV-2 and the disease that it causes is called COVID-19. While some with COVID-19 have a mild illness, others may experience difficult breathing, pneumonia, and even respiratory failure. Older Individuals and those with underlying health conditions are most at risk.
The mask filter out 95 percent of very small particles. This includes viruses and bacteria of particle size of 0.05 micron. The respirator itself is generally circular in shape and is designed to form a tight seal to your face. Elastic bands help hold it firmly to your face. Some types may have an attachment called an exhalation valve, which can help with breathing and the buildup of heat and humidity.
The production process involves 3D printed thermoforming die which is used to mould the PP sheet in the form of mask envelop and the detachable filtration system of grit size of 0.14 micron. The mask that we have designed is a free size mask that means it can fit to people with any dimensions whether they are long chinned short chinned, whether they are round faced or rectangular faced It will fit all perfectly, since it will come with a high protection filter it will filter out every particle that will try to infiltrate through it. It will also come with a silicon lining so that it does not hurt the skin of the wearer after prolonged wearing of the mask.
