This is the second of my videos on Kindness in the time Coronavirus. I chat to Alex Fergusson who speaks very fast – probably because his brain moves at that pace! His company FAC Technology in Earlsfield have designed visors that can be partly 3D printed to solve the shortage for medical frontline staff fighting coronavirus. He was called the weekend before last to see if his team could get 100 visors to the Nightingale Hospital, the government’s emergency intensive care unit at the Excel centre, for the first staff training sessions. The team delivered on the Monday. They’ve also donated 3D printed visors to other London hospitals. Imperial College NHS Trust has selected their visor design so manufacturers can now produce thousands of 3D printed visors. FACT won’t make a penny from this. And now the team are trying to scale up even further. Have a watch to find out how.
