Halo Ear Saver
When you have a product development company, you are always looking for ways to improve everything. We also wanted to put our 3D printers to work helping our medical community. We printed a few of the other ear saving designs out there, tested them, and just weren't happy with the way they worked. One weekend and six designs later, the Halo Ear Saver(TM) was born.
This simple device is quick and easy to print. It works with surgical masks to comfortably and effectively hold the elastic away from your ears. It has been tested in hospital environments with very positive feedback. It is designed to stay in place on many different shapes and sizes of head and accommodates ponytails.
