COLLABORATION

Inviting designers, engineers, developers and medical professionals to work together for improving models and finding new solutions 

FREE 3D PRINT MODELS

The crisis for medical supplies caused by the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic has made us at Custom Surgical focus primarily on helping to prototype, print and share all the ideas from anyone involved in healthcare that could help.

MedSHIELD19 Mask Set with customized snorkeling masks

We supported the initiative of Dr. David Kohn and Dr. Cristian Muñiz of turning regular snorkeling masks into protection masks by adding HME filters through  3D printed adaptors. 

The system is composed of 3 parts:

Full face snorkeling mask: This is not 3D printed, but commercially available *see below under the “Compatible masks” section)

3D-printed adaptor: specific to each mask model. We’ve currently adapted to the two models below, but we’ve also published IGES and F3D files in this GitHub repo: https://github.com/ferbeab/MedShield-19. So, everyone can modify them to fit their requirements.

HME filters: Medical-grade filters used in anesthesia machines, usually available in hospitals. If you don’t have access to them, you can also find them below and on GitHub, in other third-party projects.

If you don’t have a 3D printer, you can use one of the 3D printing services in your area or connect with a 3D printed volunteer listed below.

We want to encourage everyone that has a request to contact us at info@customsurgical.de in case they need a customized attachment for this purpose.

In order to ensure a proper cleaning and decontamination protocol for the snorkeling masks used in this project, please see the documentation shared by the Prakash Lab COVID-19 Response Group from Stanford at this link: https://bit.ly/mask-cleaning-instructions

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of filter can be used?

Currently we have been using HME filters from Dräger, whose catalog can be found here. However, the coupling should work without any problem with other manufacturers, since it has been designed to couple with different filter sizes.

What is the duration of the filter?

The manufacturer’s recommendation is to replace the filter every 24 hours. The mask and attachment are reusable after going through a complete cleaning and disinfection process.

If I want to print the adapter, what settings do you recommend?

In order to maintain the impermeability of the piece it is recommended to use ABS or PETG. Print at the maximum temperature allowed by the material and the lowest layer height.

How safe are these masks?

These masks do not have any type of safety certification or have been tested in laboratory conditions, they are an alternative to the current emergency and the problem of supply of masks

DONATING & VOLUNTEERING

Worldwide volunteers offer 3D printing, masks or materials

Healthcare workers worldwide need help to get snorkeling masks or 3D adaptors printed for their MedSHIELD19 Mask Sets!

Already a great number of volunteers from many countries have contacted us at Custom Surgical and offered to use their 3D printers for healthcare workers in their area.

We have listed our amazing list of volunteers with their contact information below. we can’t thank them enough for their willing involvement and support!

If you have a 3D printer at home and you want to help too, send us an e-mail at info@customsurgical.de with your name, e-mail, and location and we can add you on our website as well.

3D print volunteers

If you have a mask you can use and access to HME filters, but do not have a 3D printer, we encourage you to connect with the contacts* below, who offered to use their equipment to PRINT FOR FREE for those medical professionals in their area who need the adaptors.
