Made In Space Develops Face Shields & Rapid Response Ventilator Adapter at Florida and California Facilities
The company is providing hundreds of 3D printed face shields to local-area hospitals to augment the shortage of critical PPE supplies. Additionally, MIS engineers developed a rapid response ventilator adapter to enable a single ventilator to safely support multiple patients in extreme situations.
To multiply the lifesaving power of available ventilators, MIS engineers worked with local-area doctors in Jacksonville, Florida to quickly develop and test a ventilator flow adapter that can be used to safely and effectively allow multiple patients to share a single ventilator while maintaining the distinct settings required by each patient. These adapters can be quickly assembled using off-the-shelf parts available at hardware stores across the nation for less than $20. There is no special equipment needed for assembly and 3D printing is not required, officials said.
The step-by-step instructions for assembling the ventilator adapters are being shared with local-area hospitals and the information will be made available to all healthcare personnel with approval from their facility administration, the company added.
