The Canadian Shield, a Waterloo Region-based medical device manufacturer, is thrilled to announce the addition of a solution to their product line. The new attachable eye shield, called the Vizor, is a patent pending piece of PPE designed to be a simple, affordable, and practical solution for personal protection on Canada’s frontline. Made of 100% recyclable plastic, the Vizor aims to improve patient and worker safety in healthcare settings by offering an easily accessible additional barrier of protection. The Vizor, which comes flat-packed for easy storage and distribution, attaches to almost any face mask in seconds. This simple, innovative design alleviates a number of issues for frontline workers. Mainly, reduced availability of traditional combination masks, and limited space for storage and distribution of PPE. Available in compact, flat-packed packages of 50, a full box of Vizors takes up no more space than a traditional textbook. With limited storage space in hospitals, and PPE carts packed to the brim, the Vizor’s slim profile takes a fraction of the space compared to 50 face shields or goggles.
