Open-Source, Sanitization Safe, Reusable Face-Shields… made possible by the robotics community.
RobotShields are reusable medical face shields designed by members of the VEX Robotics and FIRST® Robotics community. Innovation First International and VEX Robotics are proud to answer the community’s call for manufacturers and will mass-produce this open-source design.
Reusability is going to become more and more important the longer the COVID-19 crisis continues. While there are many single-use face shields currently available, material for manufacturing of these shields is becoming hard to find. The RobotShield can be cleaned for reuse through many conventional methods, including sanitization in a hospital autoclave.
This collaboration between robotics teams, open-source designers, vendors, and manufacturers would not be possible without the connections made through the competition robotics community.

While this product is designed to assist medical care providers, it is certainly not warranted as an effective means to prevent the spread of disease. Additionally, face shields are not meant to function as primary respiratory protection and should not be used alone because aerosols can flow behind the visor. A protective facemask (medical/surgical mask, N95 FFR, etc.) should be worn concurrently with the proper use and fitting of a face shield.
