Sahyadri College startup supplies face shields to COVID-19 warriors

Mangaluru, Apr 5 (UNI) DreamWorks Makerspace, a student maker space guided by Startups at Sahyadri College of Engineering and Management in Mangaluru, have developed a design for face shields with the support of the makers community in India such as Maker’s Asylum and Fracktal Works.
The students have already supplied more than 1000 face shields to hospitals in and around Mangaluru. The basic materials used for preparing face shields are acrylic sheets, OHP sheet and thread.
Face shields are an urgent requirement in India’s fight against COVID-19. “We have reworked the design from Maker’s Asylum and have created a modified version of it. Face shields are a key piece of equipment for frontline healthcare workers working in close contact with COVID-19 patients. These face shields can protect a healthcare professional from exposure to droplets containing the virus expelled by patients when they cough or sneeze,” said a press release from Vasanth Kedige of Sahyadri College of Engineering and Management on Sunday .
