INNOV-VENTILATOR - Development and production of an innovative simple, portable and safe ventilator

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, our health system is struggling to operate in a stable way and struggling to save many lives. Unfortunately, this fight to keep many patients alive will be a hopeless one if hospitals and cities are already reporting a lack of protective clothing and above all a lack of thousands of vital ventilator systems. A ventilator shortage means some patients are denied lifesaving care. And, as has already happened in many countries, such as in Italy, doctors have to choose which patients get ventilators, and therefore live, and which ones don’t and die.
This has led us to look at a solution which our commercialization partner Carl Reiner has been developing inhouse. This design is purely pneumatic, i.e. airpowered and hence, simple and safe to operate with simple existing equipment. It will be simple to manufacture, upgradable with common sensors and display
technologies, licensed Europe-wide to manufacturers and its ease of use taught all over Europe.
