A medical face shield is an important part of personal protection equipment (PPE) used by doctors, nurses, and others who work in healthcare. Medical face shields are manufactured with a clear plastic shield that covers the face, a headband that secures the plastic, and a strap that tightens the headband around the head. The strap is often adjustable to it's a one-size-fits-all product.

Face shields are designed to protect against saliva, mucus and blood that may transmit infectious diseases including COVID-19.

Due to COVID-19, there is an increased demand for face shields and other PPE.

During the shortage, people turned to 3D printing to manufacture parts for face shields to help meet the increased demand.
