Need PPE? We can help!

If your hospital, clinic, or organization needs PPE or other supplies, please fill out our order form. We will match your needs to local makers in your area and help you connect with the right folks.

As we move forward, our matching system will also help you track your order and estimate when it will be ready. Our system is in beta testing now, but we encourage you to take a look at our dashboard which visualizes this data.

If you have any problems or comments on our system—registering as a maker, placing an order, or using the dashboard—please feel free to connect with us via email or Slack.

You can help!

Arkansas, like many places around the globe, is facing a shortage of masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE) as well other much needed  devices.

The Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub is working with hospitals, universities, manufacturers, and local makers to innovate new solutions to fill these supply gaps. We call this group the Arkansas Maker Task Force.

We are in beta development for an online matching system which serves to connect the folks who need supplies to local makers and suppliers nearest them. 

If you are a maker or supplier, you are needed. Please join us.

If you have any problems or comments on our system—registering as a maker, placing an order, or using the dashboard—please feel free to connect with us via email or Slack.
