We decided to support Sensor IT’s local hospital, the Royal Free Hospital in London. We were still a bit dubious as to whether we could simply provide PPE upon arrival, however, it was evident that there would be few hurdles: the nurse minding the A&E ward wasn’t even protected with a visor. The staff expressed considerable gratitude for the face shields we provided. This was truly inspiring as healthcare workers sacrifice their livelihoods every day without the necessary protection.
Please note, all PPE made and supplied by Sensor IT was donated to the NHS at no cost.
We decided to come up with our own design since we wanted to bring the print time down as much as possible. Our face shields can be produced on a quick turnaround, taking only 1.5 hours to make. These face shields are also easier to assemble as they contain foldback clips, instead of drilling holes on the shield, as other designs do. All shields were individually disinfected and placed in individual bags before delivery.
Sensor IT is truly grateful to all frontline workers during the pandemic and we took great pleasure in supporting the NHS as much as possible. We will happily expand our PPE provision campaign to other sites, so please do get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
