The Hero Masks Project

Projects we are doing or watching

There are a number of initiatives that we are doing ourselves
and more that we are watching to see if we can help out

 

DIY Masks

Here are some promising mask designs:

  • FixTheMask.com – A brilliantly simple design to make a typical surgical mask that may outperform an N-95 mask using three rubber bands.
    • We are looking to improve on this design by using non-latex, anti-microbial rubber bands that can be sterilized in an autoclave.
  • More coronavirus DIY: UF upcycles for masks – Making a (theoretically) 4% better than N-95 mask from fabric hospitals throw out every day

Open Source Face Shields

This project designs Face Shields and lets people print them on their own 3D printers to be shipped to hospitals.

We are currently:

  • investigating whether these designs are suitable for production by injection molding, which would allow them to be produced much faster and cheaply and with more consistent quality than the 3D-printed varieties.
  • investigating tweaks to the current design that would allow
