To tide over the shortage in Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) to tackle Covid-19, CMR Institute of Technology (CMRIT) has developed a face shield that can be mass-produced at a low cost.
The face shields can be worn over regular masks to protect Covid-19 warriors. The staff and students of CMRIT were involved in making this shield, which uses overhead projector sheet, plastic tube and elastic bands.
The first batch of 300 face shields were donated to the Bengaluru police.
“The face shield is the first of such products from CMRIT,” said Dr. Sanjay Jain, Principal, CMRIT.
This shield (Rs 30 per unit) has been developed in collaboration with ANSU 3D Tech Pvt. Ltd Bengaluru and the design was inspired by Pune’s Venture Centre and Maker Asylum of Mumbai.
