Guwahati's National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research, NIPER has come out with two products for helping to fight COVID-19 pandemic.

The first product is a 3D-printed hands-free object that could be used to help open or close doors, windows, drawers and refrigerator handle among others. The researchers came up with the design for the fabrication of the 3D-printed object after detailed analyses of several resources for risk measurement and on how viruses spread through bare hands. The face shield is also easy to design and it is possible to have rapid development of prototypes.
