Universities, colleges support local hospitals by creating life-saving equipment

April 7, 2020

Schools across the country continue to support the fight against COVID-19 through producing life-saving equipment for local hospitals. Researchers from the University of Windsor’s Faculty of Engineering have designed face masks, hands-free attachments for door handles, and constructed parts for face shield and ventilators. Faculty at Loyalist College have developed prototypes of face shields that can be made with locally-sourced materials, while Dalhousie University, OCAD University, Camosun College, and the University of Victoria are producing face masks and face shields with equipment like 3D printers and laser cutters.
