| Posted by | Categories: Health and Fitness, Merit

This new invention is about redesign and enhancement of Face Shield (FS) for Malaysian frontliners and community use in combating COVID-19. This uniqueness of the FS has met health requirements by the Ministry of Health personnel. This FS was manufactured using 30% of any thermoplastics recycled materials with less waste produced during production (mass production). This social project (CSR) was supported directly by companies such as PETRONAS, HONDA, FETTA AUTO INDUSTRIES, and STMicroelectronics through University-Industry Collaboration Initiative. FS produced has been successfully distributed nationwide and also NGO in Japan with production capacity up to 100,000 pieces within 3 months. Among targeted distribution are schools, hotels, hospitals, factories, colleges and NGO related to healthcare services. Positive feedback were gathered from users with regards to design, confortability, agility, functionability and durability which is beyond expectation.
