• The Med-Tech company focused on women’s health, donated the masks to assist the COVID-19 outbreak in the country.
San Jose, April 13, 2020. Establishment Labs (NASDAQ: ESTA) allocated part of its human and technology team to producing 1,000 reusable plastic face masks to be donated to the Ministry of Health and the Manuel Antonio Chapuí y Torres National Psychiatric Hospital to help with its assistance in the country’s COVID-19 emergency.
The masks were designed together with the Bionic Foundation and manufactured by a brigade of company volunteers who, heeding the country’s call for help, decided to work on the project. Made of high caliber transparent PVC, the masks cover the entire face and are reusable.
The company informed that they can be reused if they are treated with simple cleaning methods such as soap and water, chlorine dissolved in water, or alcohol 96% dissolved in water to a 70% solution.
Establishment Labs founder and CEO Juan José Chacón Quirós commented, “Our work has always been sustained by the goal of promoting the health and wellbeing of our patients, so we feel it is essential for us to be able to contribute as a corporate citizen to the country’s COVID-19 emergency.”
