Students at McGill University in Montreal, Que., are putting their higher education to use toward the greater good, designing new protective equipment for health care workers battling against COVID-19.
With reports of dwindling medical supplies and personal protective equipment (PPE) coming from all corners of the country, a group of students is perfecting their design of a face mask that could be manufactured on a 3D printer.
”This is a primary design, its not the final product but if you put it on your face you can see that it still protects me and if I talk to you it captures my fluids and it protects my surfaces from other fluids,” said Cyril Mani, a first-year engineering student at McGill.
Mani and a group of fellow engineering and business students are designing face masks that can be reproduced on a 3D printer, without need of a large-scale manufacturing process or factory crew.
