The Canadian Shield
The Canadian Shield has announced the addition of a new solution to their product line. The new attachable eye shield, called the Vizor, is a patent pending piece of PPE designed to be a simple, affordable, and practical solution for personal protection on Canada’s frontline through COVID-19.
The Vizor is expected to improve patient and worker safety in healthcare settings by offering an easily accessible additional barrier of protection. The Vizor, which comes flat-packed for easy storage and distribution, attaches to almost any face mask in seconds.
Available in compact, flat-packed packages of 50, a full box of Vizors takes up no more space than a traditional textbook. With limited storage space in hospitals, and PPE carts packed to the brim, the Vizor’s slim profile takes a fraction of the space compared to 50 face shields or goggles.
The Vizor is also an extremely cost-effective and practical solution for many hospitals and healthcare providers. When combined with an existing stock of face masks, the Vizor works out to be more cost-effective than traditional combination masks while also eliminating the need to carry an additional product variation.
The Vizor is a direct result of The Canadian Shield’s heavy investment in manufacturing and automation over the past year. The company’s commitment to building the Canadian medical device and PPE industry from the ground up has resulted in its development of their medical mask manufacturing automation lines and machine vision systems equipped with artificial intelligence (AI) technology capabilities, which have driven their cost-competitiveness and capabilities.
