Bayou Liberty Relief

This website once served as a bulletin board for Bayou Liberty Relief (Hurricane Katrina Relief Non-Profit) organization. The camp was located in Slidell Louisiana, and temporarily housed individual volunteers and formal groups who traveled to the Hurricane zone to assist in any way they could. The camp is now closed due to mainly the lack of qualified volunteers to perform the work, and the huge amount of work that remained. There is an amount of time after a disaster when you can actually make a difference. In time in turns into bureaucracy and red tape and it is very difficult to actually get anything accomplished. Funding for the organization was held by IHC (International Humanities Center). As far as we can tell the administrators absconded with the remaining funds and left the country.

As 3ders.org reported today, "Metamason is working on custom CPAP masks for sleep apnea patients via 3D scanning, smart geometry, and 3D printing." "We're at the crossroads of 3D technology and personalized medicine," says Metamason's founder and CEO. "There are many medical products that would be infinitely more comfortable and effective with a customized fit. CPAP therapy is the perfect example&mdash;it's a very effective treatment with a 50% quit rate, because mass-produced masks are uncomfortable and don't fit properly." CPAP is a respiratory device worn during sleep to treat OSA, which affects 1 in 4 men and 1 in 9 women in the US alone. Metamason's "ScanFitPrint" process for creating their custom Respere masks translates a 3D scan of the patient's face into a 3D printed custom mask that is a perfect individual fit. To print the masks in soft, biocompatible silicone, Metamason invented a proprietary 3D printing process called Investment Molding, which creates wholly integrated products that were previously considered "unmoldable."<p><div class="share_submission" style="position:relative;"> <a class="slashpop" href="http://twitter.com/home?status=Metamason%3A+Revolutionizing+CPAP+Masks+With+3D+Scanning+and+3D+Printing%3A+http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2F1pfW62r"><img src="http://a.fsdn.com/sd/twitter_icon_large.png"></a> <a class="slashpop" href="http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fbuild.slashdot.org%2Fstory%2F14%2F07%2F24%2F2216255%2Fmetamason-revolutionizing-cpap-masks-with-3d-scanning-and-3d-printing%3Futm_source%3Dslashdot%26utm_medium%3Dfacebook"><img src="http://a.fsdn.com/sd/facebook_icon_large.png"></a> <a class="nobg" href="http://plus.google.com/share?url=http://build.slashdot.org/story/14/07/24/2216255/metamason-revolutionizing-cpap-masks-with-3d-scanning-and-3d-printing?utm_source=slashdot&amp;utm_medium=googleplus" onclick="javascript:window.open(this.href,'', 'menubar=no,toolbar=no,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,height=600,width=600');return false;"><img src="http://www.gstatic.com/images/icons/gplus-16.png" alt="Share on Google+"/></a> </div></p><p><a href="http://build.slashdot.org/story/14/07/24/2216255/metamason-revolutionizing-cpap-masks-with-3d-scanning-and-3d-printing?utm_source=rss1.0moreanon&amp;utm_medium=feed">Read more of this story</a> at Slashdot.</p><iframe src="http://slashdot.org/slashdot-it.pl?op=discuss&amp;id=5449811&amp;smallembed=1" style="height: 300px; width: 100%; border: none;"></iframe><img width='1' height='1' src='http://slashdot.feedsportal.com/c/35028/f/647410/s/3cd8fe9f/sc/4/mf.gif' border='0'/><br clear='all'/><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199108387715/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3cd8fe9f/sc/4/rc/1/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199108387715/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3cd8fe9f/sc/4/rc/1/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199108387715/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3cd8fe9f/sc/4/rc/2/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199108387715/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3cd8fe9f/sc/4/rc/2/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199108387715/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3cd8fe9f/sc/4/rc/3/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199108387715/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3cd8fe9f/sc/4/rc/3/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199108387715/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3cd8fe9f/sc/4/a2.htm"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/199108387715/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3cd8fe9f/sc/4/a2.img" border="0"/></a><img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi.feedsportal.com/r/199108387715/u/49/f/647410/c/35028/s/3cd8fe9f/sc/4/a2t.img" border="0"/><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Slashdot/slashdot/~4/TDGvO8GCkLE" height="1" width="1"/> [:db_insert_placeholder_4] => http://slashdot.feedsportal.com/c/35028/f/647410/s/3cd8fe9f/sc/4/l/0Lbuild0Bslashdot0Borg0Cstory0C140C0A70C240C22162550Cmetamason0Erevolutionizing0Ecpap0Emasks0Ewith0E3d0Escanning0Eand0E3d0Eprinting0Dutm0Isource0Frss10B0Amainlinkanon0Gutm0Imedium0Ffeed/story01.htm [:db_insert_placeholder_5] => 1406262780 [:db_insert_placeholder_6] => 1 ) in aggregator_save_item() (line 151 of /home/libertyb/public_html/modules/aggregator/aggregator.processor.inc).
