Rio Uruguay Seguros collaborates with universities to provide personal protective equipment for those caring for coronavirus patients

1 April 2020


Argentinian ICMIF member Rio Uruguay Seguros is working with local universities (the Universidad Autónoma de Entre Ríos, the Universidad Tecnológica Nacional Facultad Regional de Concepción del Uruguay and the Universidad Nacional de Entre Ríos) and other independent collaborators to enable the 3D printing of visors for the protection of healthcare personnel working to treat patients affected by the coronavirus in Argentina.

In addition, Rio Uruguay Seguros has also connected with some hospitals in Buenos Aires and provided a series of special nozzles for testing that should allow several hospitalized patients to be connected to the same ventilator.

Rio Uruguay Seguros is also working on the 3D printing of chinstraps with filter support for the Hospital de Concepción del Uruguay to distribute among the different health centres in the area of influence of the hospital.

For member-only strategic content on the cooperative/mutual insurance sector, ICMIF members have exclusive access to a range of online resources through the ICMIF Knowledge Hub.
