The face shields protect the eyes, respiratory tract and skin from direct exposure to small particles and viruses; prevent incidental touching of the face. Combined with other protective devices, such as masks, gloves and outerwear, it reduces the risk of infection, including the coronavirus infection risk.

The N.N. Blokhin Russian Cancer Research Centre is the largest oncology clinic of Russia and Europe, and one of the largest oncology clinics of the world; the staff of the Center counts 3500 people, 50 thousand patients are treated at the Center every year.

 


“Despite the pandemic-related limitations, the Cancer Research Centre works as normal. We keep on doing surgeries, X-ray therapy, and chemotherapy. Many of our patients cannot wait until the self-quarantine is over, and cancer has no quarantine either. We are grateful to TechnoSpark for the donated protective shields to protect the doctors and surgeons of the Cancer Research Centre from COVID-19, to let them do their job and save lives of the oncology patients.”
