Congratulations are in order for the Southeast Mobility and Rehabilitation Technology (SMART) team, who won a President’s Gold Medal for Exceptional Service during the COVID pandemic from the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM).

The SMART team designed, manufactured and distributed 34,000 face visors in the first eight weeks of the pandemic, providing essential PPE to frontline workers. It was truly a team effort, and every single member of the team made an essential contribution to making the project a success.

To see how the masks were produced, you can watch this short video.

A massive well done to the SMART team.
