Adidas has again collaborated with Carbon, redirecting their efforts to help healthcare workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 global health crisis.

The two are producing 3D-printed face shields to support U.S. healthcare organizations, first responders and underserved communities that have the greatest need and don’t have access to adequate supplies.

The two are using elastomeric polyurethane, typically used in Adidas 4D midsoles, to create personal protective equipment that can be sanitized and reused with hopes of eliminating waste during this time of scarcity. The print files will be shared with Carbon’s global network to reach more areas of the world.

At the time of this writing, Carbon has been able to scale production from 18,000 face shields per week to more than 50,000.
