By rapidly building much-needed equipment for frontline health-care workers, a start-up created at York University, Droplet Lab, is contributing to the fight against COVID-19.
The lab designed a face shield that can be made in less than five minutes without the need for a specialized tool and at a significantly low cost.
Founded by Alidad Amirfazli, a professor at York’s Lassonde School of Engineering, the company is sharing its design and manufacturing capabilities.
Unlike other 3-D printed versions, Amirfazli’s design uses a wireframe, cutting the production time by at least 10 times.
