I’m an inventor living outside of Hamburg Germany and I have been working on a variety of respiratory devices for Covid-19 for the past 2 months, It got started with my website https://www.myairspace.life.
I’ve since developed a few different connectors for existing snorkel masks. I’ve attached some images. I have 2 filter to mask direct connectors. One for NATO specification military filters and one for 3M filters with a bayonet connector. I’ve also got 2 connectors that put a fan between the filters and the mask to create Powered Air Purifying Respirators.
With my connectors these devices can be made available in short order. I am currently looking for a partner to finance injection molding of my adapters. The masks are very inexpensive and by using tested filters they should not require a lot of red tape to put them to use quickly.
I champion the concept of the distributed print farms but with my connectors I’ve found that each individual machine must be fine tuned to get the precise tolerances that are required to produce a no leak connection so I’ve opted to look at injection molding to get them out quickly and accurately.
Bravo to the Makers that will find the solutions we need to get a quick handle on the tools necessary to combat this crisis.
