MIT Responds: The MIT-Designed Face Shield
OVERVIEW:

Our single-piece design comes flat and can be assembled into a 3-dimensional face shield.  The shields are fabricated using die cutting, which enables us to produce these at rate of over 2.5 million per week.  They can be assembled in less than one minute per shield, on-site, by aides or other staff, and then staged at locations for pick up within hospitals.  Nurses and physicians may also assemble them in real-time if needed.
