Standardized Testing Facility for Low-Cost Ventilators

Need

Current ventilator development for the COVID-19 pandemic needs standardized testing. Accurate testing enables fast design cycles and efficient product development to enable an effective certification process of lost-cost ventilators.

Goal

Based on international standards, a test chest, and a dummy head both provided by the simulation center of the University Hospital Zurich, standardized tests are performed that investigate the functionality and the safety functions of the ventilators. In addition, COVID-19 specific tests are available too. We are a team of engineers and medical advisors who prepare the equipment and perform the testing.
