In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, the healthcare system is facing a shortage of necessary PPE equipment and a potential future shortage of ventilators to treat severe cases. Incredibly, we’ve seen people from all walks of life – engineering, medicine, hobbyists – all come together to create some incredible solutions to these issues. We especially love seeing all of the solutions that involve 3D Printing for the local manufacturing of needed equipment. We wanted to compile a list of all of the incredible new projects we’ve seen in case there is a need locally to you that you’re able to help with. We’ll continue to update this list as new projects are created. If we’ve missed something worthwhile, please let us know and we’ll get it added! If you’re wanting to help, we recommend assessing the need in your own communities before you choose where to start. According to the doctors we’ve spoken with, the best way to figure out the biggest needs in your area would be to contact your state’s health department (list here) or to contact the head of the ICU at your local hospital.
