“The 3D-printed adaptors for the Easybreath mask are a simple, cost-effective solution that will make a real difference in the lives of doctors and patients during the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Christophe Debard, Founder of the Airbus Humanity Lab.
The collaborative team—composed of Airbus ProtoSpace in Toulouse and in Getafe, Airbus St. Eloi and Seville production sites, local fab-labs, individual makers, Safran Electrical & Power, and CT Ingenieros in Spain—will continue to organise parts production over the next few weeks. Airbus’ role is to coordinate and support design and manufacturing activities, as well as logistics.
“The success of this project lies in collaboration, agility and solidarity,” says Alvaro Jara, Head of Airbus ProtoSpace Getafe. “It’s a great example of Airbus values and know-how. I’m very proud to be a part of this multinational team.”
