Campaign Description

We at Karma want to help in the fight against COVID-19.

Help Us Get PPE To Those In Need

Protecting Those Who are Protecting us with Face Shields - Contribute as a Materials Donor and/or - Purchase a Face Shield to Donate to Health Care Workers.

All of Alberta thanks you!

Make a Materials Donation Your dollars will go to buy materials for the current face shield build as well as the upcoming face mask build.

Purchase a Face Shield to Donate to our dedicated Health Care Workers and in doing so, support current Face Mask development.

We’ve joined forces with key industry partners (see below) to further augment the delivery of Face Shields (initially) and Masks (as materials are procured).

Your donation will go to creating and delivering products to those who need them most.

As the manufacturer, we are serving as the non-profit hub for materials, templates, component manufacturing and delivery to our partners for outreach. The initial shields are based on the Prusa RC3 design but modified for ease of printing.  In developing the shield, we are also focused on maximizing the use of available 3D printers and relevant services outside of Karma.

Help Us Get PPE to Those in In Need

While our primary focus is building out client ideas, our sweet spot is helping where help is needed. That’s why we have quickly responded to the Covid-19 PPE shortage and are aligning with industry partners across the province to make things happen. By instantly refocusing our machining, manufacturing and medical equipment expertise, we can proudly be part of the immediate and necessary solution.

Making that Happen

With the help of the money raised through this BoostR campaign, we’ll serve as the hub of raw materials, equipment, local capabilities and resources all working at cost.  By teaming up with amazing people and partners, we’ll collectively manufacture face shields and other PPE to protect our health care workers and collectively work to prevent this virus from spreading.

Our Day Jobs

For over 22 years, Karma Machining and Manufacturing has manufactured almost anything for Oil & Gas, Mining, Agriculture, Recreation, Aerospace, etc. At the request of industry, we also opened a separate division, Karma Medical Products, to develop rehabilitation equipment. Our flagship product, the FEPSim® rehabilitation medical device is being scaled-up for market now. It is a much needed device that simulates daily activities for patients with hand and wrist functionality impairment.  Karma has an application with Health Canada to make Class I devices, this includes Face Masks and Face Shields.  We've amended our aplication to be able to manufacture what is needed.

Please help support us by purchasing products for our frontline health workers.

Team Karma

Our Team of Collaborators is growing to help manufacture what is needed.

While we work on faceshields, we have local Edmonton partners standing by to help manufacture masks and gowns.  We're hoping to raise funds to purchase filter material required to start making face masks.

Thank-you
