“It is our responsibility, as a community, to ensure that those who protect us stay protected!”
– LA NPDT team

Shreveport, LA – LA NPDT, product design company, in their effort to contribute to the community in the fight with the COVID-19 pandemic, developed, built, and donated face shields masks to the health care facilities and first responders in Shreveport, Louisiana late March this year. The UPShiled personal protective equipment is now on the market available for everyone who needs it. But initially, the product was designed to assist during the PPE shortage and the demand thereof. The team managed to produce the first batch of shields within three days using their 3D printing machinery, engineering & design expertise, and the collaborative team spirit.

“It feels good to help someone when they are in need. Medical personnel are putting their lives on the line daily to help us. It’s the least we can do since we have the ability to do so,” LA NPDT co-founder Onega Ulanova stated.

LA NPDT is a rapid prototyping company with five years of hands-on experience in product design and development. They applied their specialties to serve the greater cause during these harsh times. The UPShield designers and engineers created a light, comfortable product for accessible use and maintenance. It is easy to clean and disinfect with medical-grade antibacterial products, and the assembly is fast and simple for any user. The design has two prongs on each side, so that the shield’s screen and the plastic headband become one piece in a single motion.

When used in the medical environment, the shield extends the life of medical masks, as well as protects the personnel from the exposure to spatter of bodily fluids, splashes, the bacteria of patients when they cough or sneeze. It can be worn on top of the goggles, regular face mask and other PPEs. The face shield can also be used in other fields where there is a need to protect face and eyes from dust, saliva, pollen, and other irritants or particles.

The team made the UPShield design available on their website for other 3D printing companies, product design companies, or individuals who want to join the effort and help their communities.
