As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread across the country and place immense strain on the already overextended US healthcare system, Superfeet has opened their doors to help those needing immediate access to 3D printers and/or production facilities to shore up short-term medical supply demand.
While business-as-usual takes a pause, Superfeet and our sister company Flowbuilt Manufacturing are hoping to contribute to the safety of our medical professionals and first responders: we're opening up capacity on our HP MultiJet Fusion printers and setting up a manufacturing line for producing life-saving medical equipment.
Superfeet is asking anyone in need of supplies to combat COVID-19 to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to determine if they can be of assistance.
"The men and women who are our first line of defense when it comes to fighting COVID-19 are facing shortages of the protective gear necessary to keep them safe. We immediately looked at our machines and our team and knew we could do more to help," says John Rauvola, CEO and President at Superfeet. "We've already started the process of prototyping several pieces for medical equipment with our 3D printers and are ready to help create solutions for those in need."
Today, we are harnessing our ability to quickly produce custom insoles for customers and channeling that power to fight the spread of COVID-19.
