A local nurse reached out to NESIT this past week asking us to 3D print some ear savers. Ear savers are devices that take the strain caused by wearing a mask off an individual’s ears. After proving the concept, we began to laser cut sheets of ear savers. Both of our laser cutters have been running long days cutting out thousands of ear savers to be donated to hospitals throughout Connecticut. As of writing this on April 13th, NESIT has donated over 2500 ear savers to 12 hospitals, nursing homes, and healthcare facilities, and are continuing to make as many as we can.
