Injection Molded Plastics
Eastek took on a start-up company with a novel design for masks for patient intubation and anesthesia.
The challenges we faced
Developing a soft material that can effectively seal against a patient's face for the masks used in patient intubation and anesthesia.
Designing the masks to accommodate four different face sizes (Infant, Small, Medium, and Large) to ensure a proper fit and functionality.
Comfort and functionality
Meeting the challenge of combining comfort, functionality, and effectiveness in the design of the masks for optimal patient experience and medical application
Eastek took on a start-up company that had a novel design for masks used for patient intubation and anesthesia. The challenge was to come up with a soft material that would seal comfortably against a patient's face. Additionally, there were 4 different face sizes to take into account - Infant, Small, Medium, and Large. Ultimately, Eastek needed to combine comfort, functionality, and effectiveness in its design.
Given Eastek's molding prowess combined with its deep experience in working with resin suppliers to identify the appropriate resin combinations, Eastek was able to produce a mask that would comfortably bond and seal to a patient's face.
Inside of 16 months, Eastek had developed the injection molding tools in-house and was in full production across all 4 sizes. The volumes were quite large during the early stages of the COVID pandemic and Eastek was able to support.
