A Teesside dad who used a 3D printer to make his son an arm is making hundreds of vital mask and visor straps to help frontline health workers.
Two years ago, Roseworth dad Callum Miller created a robotic limb for son Jamie, then 10, who was born without his left hand.
Amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the unprecedented demand for protective equipment, Callum and Jamie have started to make mask braces with a comfortable design.
They've sent out hundreds of the masks to Teesside hospitals and care homes on the front line.
The Millers have also received requests for deliveries from health service workers in the south of the UK and from the USA.
Callum, 53, and Jamie, a pupil at Stockton's Ian Ramsey school, are making and sending the mask braces and visor frames out for free from their Stockton home. They're not doing it for money, but to help out.
"I'm not charging a penny for them which seems to be shocking people. Now at the moment Jamie and I can help others and we have loads of rolls of filament," said Callum.
Some of the visors and mask straps have gone to both North Tees and James Cook hospitals on Teesside as well as a couple of care homes.
"I'm getting enquiries for loads down south and I've had loads of contacts, I've even had a woman message me from the US. I've contacts over there so they're making some for her - the whole 3D maker community is rallying around for the NHS.
"It's great to see and our little small part makes us happy."
The mask braces are designed to keep elastic away from the ears so it doesn't cut in or make the skin sore.
