Bergen MakerSpace was dedicated to helping our healthcare professionals battle COVID-19 during the height of the pandemic.
The Bergen I-Box is an Intubation Box developed jointly between the Bergen MakerSpace and physicians from our local hospital network. The I-Box provides an additional layer of protection to frontline medical staff during and after an intubation procedure when viral exposure is at its peak. The Bergen I-Box is also being used in laboratories to help protect staff working with contagious samples. A funding campaign is now allowing us to provide these devices free-of-charge to local hospitals. To date, we have produced more than 50 I-Boxes and are in the process of ensuring that local demand for these products is being met before widening our distribution efforts. If you are a representative of a local hospital and would like to request I-Boxes for your staff, we encourage you contact us.
3D Printed Ear Guards
We have engaged the entire Maker Community to print the ear guards at home and drop them in our drop box outside the Bergen MakerSpace, where we will disinfect them and bag them up for delivery to hospitals, Ambulance corps and medical facilities. To date we have distributed over 8000 Bergen MakerSpace Ear-guards.
