Glia Face Shield

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the face shield was designed and developed for 3D printing to accommodate PPE needs.

The quick-to-assemble face shield uses a low-cost mylar sheet and elastic band with a 3D-printed visor to protect individuals’ eyes, nose, and face from transmission via droplets. Glia holds a Medical Device Establishment License for the face shield from Health Canada.

In its ongoing phase 4, the face shield is being deployed in Canada and internationally, reaching the hands of frontline workers and others in the community.
