AEI clients in the COVID-19 fight: UW-Madison Engineering
Medical face shield developed from idea to production in a few days.
The team of UW-Madison Engineering and Madison’s Delve Design Consulting designed, produced, and provided medical face shields to UW Hospital in a matter of days, then shared for free how to make them. The team developed a software tool to pair medical facilities with manufacturers in close geographic proximity, around the country and the world. Ford Motor used the design to produce 75,000 face shields in a week and the shield has been adopted by the UK’s National Health Service.
