Phoenix Hospital Tries on 3D-Printed Face Masks

St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix is turning to new 3D-printed face masks as it deals with a shortage of PPE. The new masks are being created by the hospital’s Barrow Neurological Institute Innovation Center. The new masks are made out of 3D-printed plastic and are rimmed with form-fitting silicone that helps the mask adhere to the face. The plastic part of the mask is designed to attach to a P100 respirator, the highest-rated filter for personal respiratory protection. These masks are reusable and can be worn for up to 3 months.
