A Kings Langley resident is using his 3D printer to produce clips to help the NHS staff and key workers feel more comfortable while doing their job during pandemic.
Steve Martin saw on various Facebook groups other people doing the same and jumped on the opportunity to help using his 3D printer at home.
The clips will help nurses to prevent tension on the ears when wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for extended periods of time.
Steve said: “Every little helps. Even if it is going to help one or two nurses and will get them through their day a bit better then I’m happy to do it.
“There’s not much you can do in times like this. It’s just nice to know that you might be making a bit of a difference.”
Steve has so far produced 300 clips in a week, which were distributed to various locations including, Northwick Park hospital, Healing Hands who distribute to Hemel, Watford and Stoke Mandeville Hospitals.
They also went to a local care home and some smaller quantities to as far as Devon, Dorset, Central London and a few to The Nightingale Hospital.
