About Open Medical

Open Medical is an organization founded by leaders from Archimedic, NextFab, and the University of Pennsylvania.  We launched this organization with a focus on addressing the shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) during the COVID-19 outbreak.  We intend to use this website to share information, collect feedback, and fullfil the unmet needs of patients and providers.  

Our Open Source Model

By leveraging the ideas, suggestions, and expertise of a broad member base, we are able to efficiently and effectively develop new medical products to address underserved populations.  We operate under an open source model, meaning our ideas and designs are considered avaiable for public use without any patent, copyright, or other intellectual property restrictions. If you are interested in collaborating with us through this open-source model, please sign up as a member and contribute.  Thank you!

Origami Mask

Our Origami Mask is being developed to address the shortage of PPE in our healthcare institions.  Below is an image of the original version of this product.  It is continuously being refined by our members, and the latest information is published on the Origami Mask page.
