Next-Generation, Low-Cost Ventilator for Developing Countries


Low and middle-income countries with more fragile medical systems are in great need of low-cost ventilators to raise the capacity of their healthcare systems. They are likely to be left out of the current surge in ventilator development for COVID-19 in developed countries. 


We are a team of engineers, an industrial designer and medical advisors who are designing, prototyping and testing a low-cost ventilator to meet the unique needs of developing countries. We are getting a head start on a next-generation ventilator that builds on current developments to create a use-case and user-driven product. When finished, we will make our design open-source and available to all.
