Superfeet has spent the last 43 years keeping people on their feet. In response to COVID-19 we shifted our insole and footwear manufacturing focus to PPE with the goal of helping to keep the medical community on their feet in this time of need.
Superfeet is using our Product Development, Engineering, Sourcing, 3D Printing Capacity and Manpower to aid in the fight against COVID-19. We responded to our local hospital's need for PAPR hoods by designing a sanitizable, reusable hood. We've accepted orders for 42,000 units that are delivering in April to hospitals in the Northwest and are opening up an additional 30,000 unit capacity that will deliver in May nationwide.
PAPR Hoods produced by Superfeet are natively compatible with the 3M Air-Mate™ system and using our 3D printers, we have adaptors to allow them to be used with the major systems found in hospitals today. The hoods are Reusable and Sanitizable and designed to stand up to the rigors of the current environment.
