Weaving nets in the middle of emergency

In La Plata, a group of professionals are manufacturing high-quality masks for medical personnel. Networks that save.

If we fall into a vacuum, one thing can save us:  networks . Networks of talents, minds, hands. Solidarity networks that will contain us and will help us move forward. Faced with the coronavirus  pandemic  , there are already many who are weaving networks. At the   Universidad Tecnológica Nacional Regional de La Plata   (Buenos Aires), a group coordinated by engineers was formed, called  UTN 3-D  . They perform  high quality masks  for hospitals and seek to provide supplies to health professionals.

 Solidarity  began to sprout spontaneously throughout the country. But, many times, that's not enough.  We are going through a health crisis that requires the utmost caution in every way.  In particular, inputs used in hospitals and clinics. If the materials with which masks and fislets are made are not as indicated, epidemiological damage can be expanded. That is why it is so important to turn to experts and use the right technology.

Quality inputs

That is what is happening in La Plata with the  UTN 3-D group: engineers, chemists, computer science, doctors and volunteers of various kinds, such as seamstresses, joined by social networks to produce  top quality inputs . They work day and night online in a race to beat that invisible  enemy  .

The  UTN 3-D  group is focused on making  biosecurity masks  as isolation barrier for  COVID-19 virus.  These are 3D printed eye or face protection masks, which are more effective than  fallow because they cover  the entire face and are absolutely waterproof. They also perform respirator supports. Already 100 masks and about 10 pieces were distributed for peripheral respirators in hospitals and care centers in La Plata. The distribution is in charge of the local commune.

The team is also working on other inputs to supply the hospital medical staff so that when the worst comes, they are prepared in the best way.
