A Pueblo company is creating solutions for COVID-19 Protective Mask shortage

ActivArmor to Begin Producing Custom-fit, Low-Cost Reusable Respirator Masks with Bacterial Filtration Test Score Greater than 98.9%

Pueblo , CO – March 2 7 , 20 20 – Biomedical startup, ActivArmorTM, and the University of Maryland’s Robert Fischell Institute for Biomedical Devices have joined forces to bring affordable custom-fitted, reusable respirators to healthcare workers using patent-pending filters made with 98.9% bacterial filtration material for Covid-19 Pandemic Healthcare Professionals.

ActivArmor Respirators: • Seal out airborne particulates – Tested and have passed FDA utilized permeability tests • Utilize patent-pending filter system, with material that achieves greater than 98.9% Bacterial Filtration Test (BFT) score. (Higher than P-95 filter systems on the market!) • Are transparent and designed for visibility of the healthcare worker’s lips while speaking, to ensure full patient/provider communication when voice may be muffled inside the mask. • Custom molded to the face for a perfect seal to lock out contaminants • Comfortable – custom formed to each individual’s face instead of traditional masks that seal by pressure on the mask, causing pressure bruising on healthcare workers • Lightweight – Only 0.5 mm thick to maximize visibility and reduce headaches/neck strain on healthcare workers • Low-profile – custom designed to face shape to eliminate interference in care by bulky, awkward masks • Remoldable – easily adjusted and re-molded as needed for seal or comfort • Reusable – durable and washable for safe re-use with long-lasting, replaceable filters • Affordable – starting at just $25

With the current shortage for hygienic, custom-fit, reusable N95 masks, ActivArmor is stepping up to fill the need and keep our front-line healthcare workers safe and protected. ActivArmor’s respirator designs have been tested and passed permeability tests used by the FDA, ensuring custom seal around the mask and the highest rated bacterial filters to address exposure risk experienced with many masks currently in use. The masks are hygienic, washable and re-usable with low-cost replaceable filters. ActivArmor has the capacity to manufacture thousands of respirators each day. Custom and standard designs are available to be pre-ordered on their website as of late Friday, March 27, with production starting the week of April 6. The design options are: • Custom-designed masks, fitted to each individual’s facial scan, using an iPad attachment. ($140 one-time custom mold design + $25 per respirator mask) • Standard designed, custom fitted masks come in Small, Medium, and Large, that can be thermoformed to the face. ($25 per respirator mask) Additional filters can be purchased for $5 each ($10 per pair)

ActivArmor is a Colorado-based company that provides a hygienic, waterproof alternative to traditional casting and splinting through 3D printing. Their casting solutions are used by hospitals and orthopedic clinics across the country, allowing those with injuries requiring immobilization to continue to swim, bathe, shower and wash their hands while healing. Providers replace casting inventory and labor with a 30-second scan – and a custom-designed and fabricated device is delivered in 3-4 business days, eliminating the need for all future casting/splinting for the patient throughout their healing phases. ActivArmor casts can be locked-on or removable, thick or thin, custom coverage areas, and adaptable for use with advanced healing technologies like ultrasound bone stimulators. Patients advertise for the providing clinic with free logos on every device. ActivArmor devices are covered by insurance including Medicaid and Medicare (call specific clinics for coverage details). ActivArmor orthoses are being prescribed by medical providers for treatment of acute injuries like breaks and sprains, and for chronic conditions like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in clinics across the country.
