My name is Rahim Bhimani and I'm an Industrial Designer/Design Strategist and most importantly a maker. I have my own laser cutter and felt the need to help with the shortage of PPE.
I was featured on the front page of the Globe and Mail on April 1st, check out the Article!
Shield Hero Pro + Shield Hero Flex took over 75+ prototypes and variations to finalize the final design.
As a designer, it’s vital to get user feedback and empathize with the user/physicians. While using twitter and tapping into my community, I was able to get in touch with three talented front-line physicians. They are currently practicing from hospitals in Brampton, Downtown Toronto, and Scarborough. I went to their driveway and was fortunate to get feedback and had them test my reusable shield design for a couple of days. Their constructive feedback was a blessing and has allowed me to make thousands to date.
