Knox Makers is organizing efforts to create and provide protective equipment and support to our local health community.

Face Shields

A face shield to be worn by medical workers.

Our design is based on the Prusa Face Shield with alterations made in response to feedback from UT Emergency Department.

It involves a 3d printed part printed part, a laser cut part, and button hole elastic.

Fabric Masks

Fabric masks are meant to protect from the spread of droplets from the wearer's mouth and nose.

These are currently being recommended for everyone and not just health workers.


Surgical Mask Straps

The surgical mask straps hold the elastic that normally is held by a health worker's ears.

It helps save the irritation caused by prolonged usage.
