I am supporting our local paediatric teams with searching for see through face masks, to enable a team with a Dr who is deaf, to be able to lip read.

So far the commisioners have escalated to NHSE/I, procurements, specialised commissioning, regional teams and nowhere has had any success to date.

Some suggestions made for 3D printing, and we've contacted various PPE suppliers for suggestions and availability.  

Tornado hoods and full face positive pressure visors also being considered

Open to any other suggestions from the brains of Hexitime!!

This is an opportunity for service users to be creative, there is clearly a market for such innovation. Any updates on this?

I wonder if Dr. Freddie Johansson on here he is doing something clever with using 3d printers to make PPE ?
