None of us expected that the year 2020 would “greet us” with the global COVID-19 epidemic. Neither governments nor healthcare systems were ready for such an event. That’s why we need to join forces and act now.
We have decided to support the medical community by temporarily shifting our focus from drones to manufacturing medical face shields.
We created an open-source project to allow everyone in the world to produce medical equipment and help doctors in their fight with Coronavirus.
What do we want to achieve?
Our goal is simple: to protect medical staff from contracting Coronavirus by manufacturing protective wear and teaching the global community – from well-resourced manufacturers to total amateurs – how they can print medical equipment themselves.
To achieve this, we need to do two things:
- collect funds for materials needed for printing personal protective equipment (known as PPE)
- reach out to the global 3D printing community and encourage them to participate in our open source project. Files are available for everyone to download at www.covidchallenge.cervi.io. Everyone with 3d printer can join!
Engaging the 3D printing community.
We want to publish 3D printing projects that anyone with a 3D printer in the world can use to help healthcare workers fight with Coronavirus.
Our projects are free and open-source and are available to be downloaded immediately. We also offer our guidance to anyone who wants to join our charity and provide help.
The campaign includes the following, ready-to-use files for download here www.covidchallenge.cervi.io:
- face shields
- splitter for ventilators
We want to share with you the open-source medical designs with instructions, tips, and encourage others to join us in our efforts.
At Cervi Robotics, we’re already printing face shields.
While we’re already working our 3D equipment day and night but it’s still not enough to protect everybody. We really need your help!
The doctors and nurses we reached so far can now wear protective gear and safely treat their Coronavirus patients.
The main problem we are facing now is the lack of materials that are necessary to keep printing medical equipment.
To resolve this problem, we decided to turn our initiative into a charity event and ask people to support our idea.
We have never seen people around the globe cooperate to such an extent before, so we really hope we can get others to jump aboard to fight the pandemic.
Business and manufacturing partners are extremely welcome, as well as individuals.
If you can’t help us through printing, please contribute financially or share this campaign with others to spread the word!
