Meeting PPE Demands

May 14, 2020

In this time of uncertainty we are so thankful to our partners and generous supporters, who have come together to support our community.

 

Together, the University Libraries’ DeLaMare Science and Engineering Library, Innevation Center, Computer Science and Engineering Department and The Department of Art Fabrication Lab have produced the following PPE for our local hospitals and healthcare heroes.

  • 3D printed 1,459 Face Shield headbands
  • Delivered more than 6,100 face shields
  • Have cut, sewn and delivered 408 gowns
  • Produced 30 ventilator adapters, which is a hose adapter that attaches to a respirator, allowing the hospital to put more respirators into circulation. 

We will continue to support our local hospitals and healthcare workers as long as necessary. Thank you for your support, please continue to share our efforts with your friends and family.
