3D printing of medical supplies

3D printing of medical supplies

INNSPIRAL joins the design and engineering initiative of DILAB at the Catholic University of Chile and FabIDI, 3D-printing supports for medical face shields in hospitals. Collaborating with the Ministry of Health and hospitals, they have already produced 80 supports, aiding in the battle against the COVID-19 crisis. From home, innovation continues to thrive.

A couple of days ago, the DILAB of the Catholic University of Chile and its FabIDI invited us to take part in a significant Design-Engineering Initiative. 

What’s it all about? Creating 3D-printed supports for the medical face shields being used in hospitals during the COVID-19 crisis. 

As INNSPIRAL, we didn’t want to miss out on this initiative. We offered up our 3D printer, using design and engineering as the foundation for developing new creations. 

Responding to requests from the Ministry of Health and hospitals, at low cost and without major construction complexities, we’ve taken on a challenge that will benefit many people. To date, we’ve produced 80 printed supports, and we’ll keep on manufacturing more. 

Making a significant impact and supporting those who are saving lives day in and day out during this pandemic is also part of our innovation challenge. 

A big thank you to DILAB UC for the invitation, AFES for coordination, FabLab UChile for optimizing the 3D model, and to all the makers who are participating in this tremendous goal. 

From our homes, we will be stronger.
