TEC supplies Danish hospitals with vital equipment
Similar to most other nations affected by the epidemic, hospitals across the country have been running out of key equipment. The items particularly in need include personal protective equipment such as facemasks.
Although the school has been physically closed off since the spread of the disease took off in Denmark, TEC have been doing what they can to lend a hand to the health care workers. Throughout the crisis, staff at TEC has continuously searched through the school to find equipment. So far, they have supplied several hospital with important equipment such as protective glasses, masks and gloves.
Not only have TEC supplied hospitals with existing equipment: Some of our staff have taken it a step further by producing new equipment with 3D-printers. Creative production spaces are kept open, while a few teachers are working the 3D-printers to produce visors for the medical staff at the hospitals of Greater Copenhagen. The visors have played an important role in the protection of the nurses, who are grateful for the much-needed equipment.
