Entro Design Director, Aleks Bozovic, is helping to fight the COVID-19 pandemic by 3D printing critical components of Personal Protective Equipment for local hospital workers.
In light of the current pandemic, medical leaders at Michael Garron Hospital in Toronto’s east end have organized a Personal Protective Equipment drive. Members of the community with access to 3D printers have been especially valuable, as they can quickly produce components of the equipment such as visors frames and clips. These pieces are then sanitized and assembled with visors and elastics, giving front-line hospital staff access to much-needed protection to keep them safe.
Entro Design Director, Aleks Bozovic, is just one of many designers contributing to the cause by printing visor clips. Of the project, Aleks says he was inspired by others in the field to help in any way he can. Michael Garron Hospital is a staple of his community, he notes, and “any effort helps." Many members of the Entro team have close ties to front-line hospital staff, and we are deeply touched by Aleks’ work.
