VIH Aerospace donates ear saver straps
When healthcare and other essential service workers expressed that wearing masks for extended periods can be uncomfortable, individuals, companies and organizations stepped up to offer solutions.
In British Columbia, a 7th grade Boy Scout named Quinn Callander inspired Victoria-based VIH Aerospace to produce adjustable face mask ear straps using a 3D printer. Callander published an open-source 3D print design that improves comfort by pulling mask straps off the back of the wearer’s ears. VIH has printed more than 100 "ear saver straps" using this open-source design. The ear savers have been donated to two local hospitals. Image Source: VIH Aerospace.
