This design has undergone review in a clinical setting and 3D Printing Tech is fabricating it as instructed, see website below for original design post on the NIH 3D Print Exchange.
The Stopgap Face Mask was created as an emergency action in effort to protect people by providing backup PPE options if the standard PPE has become unavailable. This device has not gone through the same regulatory approval process as standard PPE.
The Stopgap Face Mask consists of two main components (the mask body and the filter cover) and contains features for attaching two elastic straps and receiving a patch of filter material. It is recommended that the rectangular filter patch and elastic straps are disposed of after every use of this device. The remaining parts of the plastic mask can be disinfected using common disinfecting solutions or sterilized and reused.
PLEASE NOTE: 3D Printing Tech is offering the 3D printing services of this mask body and the filter cover only, we are not providing straps and/or the filter media at this time.
