Protective Face Shield that can be built in less than a minute

About the solution

A team at NYU designed a face shield for healthcare workers that can be built in less than a minute. This design was created in response to the severe lack of protective equipment, necessary to face the COVID-19 pandemic, that was being reported by healthcare facilites all over the world.

Unlike most face shield designs available, the design created by NYU doesn’t require 3D-printing. 3D-printing is a somewhat time consuming process and the team wanted to develop a product that could be manufactured extremely quickly, to meet the current needs.

This face shield can be built with basic materials, namely clear plastic sheet and a wide elastic band, and can be assemble with basic equipment in less than a minute. The design, list of materials and assembly instructions are available and can be found at the project’s webpage: https://open-face-website.now.sh/instructions
The team is also looking for manufacturares willing to help scale the production capacity.
