Health care workers worldwide have been complaining of the pain experienced near the ears while wearing N95/FFP2/FFP3 or similar masks. As per current guidelines, these masks are recommended to protect health care workers during the COVID-19 pandemic while working on patients and performing aerosol-generating procedures. This problem is solved by using “Ear savers” or “Ear guards”. Different ear saver designs are widely available online. This version is a modified version of the ear saver available on www.printforacause.org
To solve the problem of cost and time involved in 3D printing, a flexible plastic material was chosen which can be easily mass-produced and disinfected. If you are in Chennai – pickup your FREE ear savers (limit two per person) at Acharya Dental. You will need to fill out the form here beforehand so we can keep the ear savers ready for you and ensure adequate social distancing at Acharya Dental. Once you fill the form, we will send you a message when your free ear savers are ready for pickup.
