Printing PPE to support healthcare staff fighting COVID-19

Posted by on Apr 20, 2020

Over the past week our own Spencer Bates used our office 3D printer to create nearly 200 mask strap extenders, which today his wife brought into Banner University Medical Center – Phoenix, where she works.

Since the staff has to wear masks all day, they end their shifts with pain and irritation at the back of their ears where the standard mask straps attach. These strap extenders relieve that strain by holding the straps off the ear for a more comfortable all-day experience.

We are so happy to support our healthcare staff who are leading the way through these unprecedented times. Thank you for saving lives and keeping our communities healthy!
