In one of many moves made by run industry vendors, Superfeet Worldwide has responded to the immense strain put on the U.S. health card system by offering to utilize its 3D printing capabilities to shore up short-term medical supply demand.
So while business as usual in the run specialty space takes a pause, Superfeet and its sister company, Flowbuilt Manufacturing, are looking to contribute to the safety of medical professionals and first responders by opening up capacity on their HP MultiJet Fusion printers and setting up a manufacturing line for producing medical equipment.
Superfeet is asking anyone in need of supplies to combat COVID-19 to reach out to [email protected] to determine if they can be of assistance.
“The men and women who are our first line of defense when it comes to fighting COVID-19 are facing shortages of the protective gear necessary to keep them safe. We immediately looked at our machines and our team and knew we could do more to help,” says Superfeet CEO and president John Rauvola. “We’ve already started the process of prototyping several pieces for medical equipment with our 3D printers and are ready to help create solutions for those in need.”
