Dealing with patients with COVID-19 poses risks for health professionals and their protection is vital both for the safety of themselves and their immediate environment, as well as for avoiding the spread of the virus in the workplace. In addition, patients with COVID-19 hospitalized in Intensive Care Units often need to undergo very high-risk medical and nursing procedures.
In the context of “Q3D” project [T1EDK-04928], aiming to contribute substantially against the health crisis of Covid-19 pandemic, the Centre for Research & Technology Hellas (CERTH) and the International Hellenic University (Departments of Production & Management Engineering and Management Science & Technology) in collaboration with "ANiMA - The 3D Printer Experts", "Thes3D", "Quick3Dparts" and "Retouch-Health Solutions" companies, delivered, today at 08/04/2020, to the University General Hospital AHEPA and to the General Hospital G.
