Join us to help be a part of the solution! As you might know, first responders and frontline health professionals are risking their lives everyday due to the shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Many incredible volunteer efforts have been made to get N95 respirator masks to the frontline, but there is still a need other Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Reusable Face Shields PPE are on the list of important PPE needed to help protect our frontline professionals’ eyes and face from potential splashes and COVID 19 virus aerosolization.
What do we make?

HealthOS Network is an all-volunteer, open sourced effort to produce critical PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) including invaluable face shields to supply frontline workers combatting COVID-19.
Who Is Health OS Network?
A team of scientists, designers, engineers, medical, tech professionals and philanthropists volunteering from San Francisco, Miami, New York, Boston, New Mexico, Los Angeles, Sweden, and Mexico, working together to provide open sourced early stage face shield, mask, and ventilator prototypes.
Why are we doing this?
We’re doing our part to ensure frontline workers have the vital equipment they need to keep them safe and help save lives
To do this, we are utilizing both individuals’ and companies’ access to CNC, laser cutters and 3D printers to make crucial protective face shields
The HealthOS 3D printed designs were funded by the Pishevar Family Foundation. The original design was improved upon using our open sourcing philosophy, so front line essential workers without goggles and masks can be more protected with the latest design. The most recent innovative CNC and laser design was a collaboration between Clement Jouvet (NY), Mayan Warrior, Neotecnia (Mexico), and HealthOS. Open sourcing enables rapid innovation, which is necessary to combat this crisis. We have been switching over to CNC and laser, as it is the fastest production time and reduces the overall costs.

"Hello! My name is Liz Mitchell, and I am a full time ER doctor and mother of two in Los Angeles. My husband is a firefighter and we are both trying to save lives during the covid 19 crisis.
Every time we see a patient with COVID-19, we need special equipment to protect ourselves, such as face shields, N95 masks, and gowns. As the pandemic spreads throughout the United States, we are both seeing more and more patients with COVID-19.
We are running low on supplies, and are worried about what will happen if we run out.
It is not just us.
It is not just in our area.
It is our fellow nurses, PA’s, respiratory therapists, EMS, NP’s, environmental services, medical assistants, radiology, and so many others who are in need. All across the US, those on the frontlines are having the same difficulty obtaining the supplies we need to stay safe. This virus knows no boundaries and we need your help to make it through this! Please help those of us on the frontline!"
