Midsouth Makers 2021 – Making masks to fill the COVID-19 supply chain gap

by on Jun.01, 2021, under Crafts, Events, News, Projects, Prusa, RepRap

Due to Safer At Home guidelines, Midsouth Makers were forced to close our doors to the public in March 2020. We are pleased to announce that our weekly Friday Open Houses are restarting on Friday, June 4th at 7 pm. We’re excited to welcome the public back to our Makerspace and see what we’ve been building in the past year. Feel free to stop by for a tour during these open house events and meet our members.

While we were closed to the public, we were not idle. The high demand for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) strained the supply chain for these to the breaking point. To help make up the gap until the large manufacturers could get up to speed, makers around the world started producing simple disposable face shields and cloth masks. Midsouth Makers were no different. Once the need was recognized and a design accepted by medical professionals, we began the manufacturing and assembly of the face shields. In just 12 weeks, we produced over 77,000 masks and with support from the Memphis Medical Society, distributed them to doctors, nurses, and other front-line workers that needed them free of charge.
