Nine miles from Bridgewater, Tapster Robotics in Oak Park is 3D printing bands that can be used for similar shields. They plan to print about 50 per day, and get them to hospitals or medical professionals who need more equipment.
Founder Jason Huggins has already found a group in need: Swedish Hospital in Lincoln Square.
“We’re all gonna want to have doctors, and nurses, and health care professionals available and healthy,” Huggins said.
