In order to slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the CDC advises individuals across the country to cover their faces with cloth masks fashioned from household items. This is recommended instead of surgical masks and N-95 respirators that must be reserved for healthcare workers on the front lines of the pandemic.
While the CDC does provide a video on how to make your own face covering at home, many people are finding this easier said than done. Getting a snug fit over your nose and mouth with just a scarf or bandana can prove difficult, plus, the last thing you want is to keep touching your face while out and about in order to adjust the material.
Because of this, Dr. Dusty Richardson, Dr. Spencer Zaugg, and Colton Zauggt set out to create a 3D mask that is customizable, adjustable, compliant with CDC guidelines, and able to be sanitized between uses.
When you purchase the 3D Filtration Mask Kit you will receive everything you need to make a mask at home that fits all your needs as well as the guidelines given by the CDC. Included in the kit are MERV13 filters, which block particles smaller than one micron in size, as well as an elastic headband, adjustable headband clips, and a rubber nose piece for a snug fit. Additionally, you can easily clean the plastic body of your new mask with an isopropyl alcohol wipe.
On top of all of this, the 3D Printed Filtration Mask Kit is on sale now. While it normally retails for $29.99, you can get it today for only $21, or 29% off the usual price.
