America Makes Opens Online Repository Connecting AM, Healthcare Industries

Friday, April 3, 2020

America Makes has developed an online repository to address equipment shortages resulting from the COVID-19 crisis. The repository features specific areas where healthcare providers can submit their needs, designers can submit their designs, and manufacturers can submit their additive manufacturing (AM) capabilities.

American Makes partnered with the Food and Drug Administration, the Department of Veterans’ Affairs and the National Institutes of Health to help ensure that the AM industry effectively and safely can meet the needs of America’s healthcare workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis. This site will record necessary information from the AM industry and healthcare providers, and eventually will include a pathway for designs to be uploaded for review to ensure that they meet medical standards and can be downloaded for use in production.
