Please describe in detail including the TRL Level:
It was distrubuted to local medical staffs.


Applications: Face shields are PPE's utilized by numerous laborers (e.g., clinical, dental, veterinary) for security of the facial region and related mucous films (eyes, nose, mouth) from sprinkles, splashes, and scatter of body liquids.
Advantages: -more comfortable -protect a larger portion of the face -less retained dermal facial heat -less fogging than goggles -less claustrophobic -no impact on breathing resistance -no fit testing required -can be disinfected easily -wearers do not need to be clean shaven -easy to don and doff -relatively inexpensive -no impact on vocalization -can be worn concurrent to other face/eye PPE -do not impede facial nonverbal communication -reduced patient anxiety

It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
