“€2 FOR A 800A”
THE CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN TO TELL THE VIRUS TO BACK OFF
In fighting Covid-19doctors, family doctors, nurses, rescuers, private healthcare professionals and everyone else at the front need protection to be able to take care of us in safety. Protection devices are hard to find, demand is surging and time is running short. Working alongside medical doctors and anesthesiologists we designed CoronaScreen-800A® (DPI CE, cat. I), an innovative PPE device, and then started a crowdfunding campaign in order to mass-manufacture and donate the face shields to healthcare professionals, workers and citizens doing their best to provide all of us with the essential services. If you wan to effectively contribute you can either donate, via bank transfer or PayPal, or help with production by contributing materials and services. Check out the How can I help? section to learn how. Fighting Covid-19 affects each and every one of us: we can only defeat it together.
COME NASCE CORONASCREEN-800A
COVID-19 has brought the whole planet down to its knees, Italy being one of the worst-struck countries. We are dealing with an invisible, insidious enemy, and people all over the world are coming together in a combined effortLike many others, we asked ourselves how we could be useful to the community, and the answer came from a team of doctors working at the P. Giaccone General Hospital of Palermo in Sicily. di Palermo They expressed their urgent need for an easily wearable, rapidly manufactured item of personal protection equipment for the eyes and respiratory tract. We tackled the task starting from what we can do: merging technology with creativity in order to devise innovative products and solutions. In a matter of days we gathered sicilian engineers, designers, creatives and professionals from different backgrounds together under the coordination of YAM srland designed a light, easy to assemble face shield The Project is hosted by Università degli Studi di Palermo Consorzio ARCA and is coordinated by YAM S.r.l. , a company dealing in the design and building of sailing yachts, experimental research and innovative additive manufacturing technologies. Phase 1 of the project involved the development of a prototype, co-designed and optimized with the support of doctors and nurses. Once the final design was tested, approved and validated, we laid the foundations for a scaled production by involving suppliers, charitable associations, groups and volunteers, in order to meet the rising need for this kind of protection device.
The name we picked, which contains a hidden reference to a popular sicilian slang swearword, is irreverent, impudent, firm and proud as only sicilians can be: CoronaScreen-800A®.

IL CROWDFUNDING CORONASCREEN
Abbiamo lanciato la campagna di raccolta fondi a inizio marzo 2020, quando Covid-19 iniziava a entrare nella sua fase più critica e da medici e infermieri ci giungevano testimonianze di grande difficoltà nell’approvigionamento di dispositivi di protezione individuale. Il sostegno di privati e associazioni come Rotary, LiscaBianca, Fondazione con il Sud è stato da subito molto concreto e, nell’arco di 3 mesi, ha permesso di donare oltre 4000 visiere a Ospedali, RSA, volontari del soccorso, associazioni impegnate nell’assistenza di persone in difficoltà in tutta Italia.
