To all the Makers, Fab labs, Maker Spaces and Industry who want to help the medical community to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic:

VIVALab wants to help and has teamed up with Hospital do Santo António, Hospital São João and Porto City Council and also with several partners from the local industry.

The goal is to create solutions for the needs that the health professionals have at the moment.

To help with this quarantine period, the VIVA Lab team created an extra page on their website, VIVA @ Home.

On this page we try to create content that helps to complement the days of the Portuguese with the joy of learning. We know that everyone has responsibilities, both for schools and jobs, but we believe that we can take advantage of this adversity to create different and rewarding learning moments for all ages.

Once again, we call on all makers, both young and old, to protect themselves and follow the guidelines of the DGS and CMP to enter voluntary quarantine.

We are producing 3,000 Units for Hospitals in Porto!

Many thanks to everyone for their support and especially to the team of volunteers who made this project a reality.


We are a family owned and operated business. Unfortunately, we have reached the financial limit of our Association to continue to buy the material that allows us to produce the protections that are so necessary for health teams and that unfortunately we continue to receive orders from North to South of the country. We will try to respond through the Maker community and Fab Labs by sharing the requests we receive and making the production files open to everyone.

The protection set (Visor, Eyeglass and Mask) has a material cost of just € 3.50 and we produce an average of 1 every 1.3 minutes, so that we can continue to protect our "front line", homes and other places . Any support is welcome!
