SiDi Uses 3D Printer to Produce Protective Masks for Rehab Clinic

We recently joined a design team led by engineering professors Raj Rao, Wenchao Zhou and Zhenghui Sha at the University of Arkansas to use 3D printers to produce protective masks in response to the COVID-19 crisis. The team printed and delivered 50 protective masks to be used by a Northwest Arkansas rehabilitation clinic. The Ph.D. student Laxmi Poudel from SiDi Lab participated in this initiative and helped print about 35 masks. Prof. Zhou has produced two short videos, one showing how the masks are made and another showing clinicians how to assemble the masks. See the full story covered by UARK NEWS.
