They have now hit over £26k raised and 22k visors supplied :)
 
How you gonna know that's the cause of you getting ill? Just as easy to get it from the lady selling you milk at the garage
It's not the thing failing to protect the wearer from infection which is the problem, it's things like what happens if it breaks in use and the sharp edge causes injury. So, questions like, what material is the visor made from, and what are the specific properties of that material which makes it suitable for this use, need to be considered.

......and meanwhile, a disproportionate number of NHS Staff go down with it, and some die. Not all older staff, not all with pre- existing health conditions.

In this situation, the whole world in lockdown, a handkerchief that you have pissed on and tied around your nose and mouth, is probably better than no handkerchief.

I am slightly miffed as a full face, positive pressure hood was designed, built , tested (by a Doctor in a Southern Hospital)
and given the thumbs up by him.

Over a month ago.
Loads of us are tooled up and ready to knock them out.

It probably has'nt got a CE Mark, or something......

Happily, you're wrong. The statistics show that it is a disproportionately small number of NHS Staff who have died.

Why not simply use an existing, proven design? Designed, built, tested, and given the thumbs up by people whose job it is to design build test and use these things.

Loads of you could have been knocking them out for over a month.

You could even have a CE Mark or something on them ...

Because the NHS asked them to design it.

Not vice versa.
 
"The NHS"?

There is plenty of RPE in existence, why reinvent the wheel?

Why reinvent the wheel indeed.

But we were asked to, and did it.
I have a nasty feeling there is a left-hand , right-hand problem going on.

Or - we are going to be building the replacements for equipment used up in the last few weeks.
Or to put in stores for Covid 2023.
