We seek volunteers that are prepared to provide the necessary expertise for our life-saving work for the duration of the emergency. For clarity, this means work without pay. However, there will be formal acknowledgements and expressions of gratitude in a variety of formats.

In the current situation, we are expanding our team of volunteers. To be successful in our mission we will need experts to set up supply chains, manage production facilities and do other jobs that require a fair amount of experience. We are looking for help with finding and targeting such people and to raise awareness about our project in general.

To get things started, somebody with a deep and broad understanding of people with diverse backgrounds, a strong network and some basic computer skills would be ideal.

It might be that you don’t feel you have the time or the necessary skills to be of much help but would like to contribute to this endeavour. But in an emergency situation like this, you might be able to bridge the gap until somebody more suitable comes along, so do not hesitate to speak to us.

Even if you were just to set up social media accounts and identify more ways to target volunteers, you could have an impact on the amount and quality of our volunteers, which would consequentially result in saved lives.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of the world's medical workforce fighting COVID-19

Description

We are a non-profit organization building an infrastructure to develop, manufacture, distribute and operate remote-controlled ventilators and oxygen concentrators that will also gather high-resolution treatment data for scientific research and treatment optimization.
Our equipment will be distributed on a "what you can pay" basis. Our Ventilator is different from other emergency Ventilators in that it will be controllable over the Internet, with the medical professional observing the patient over a phone camera, thus reducing viral load on the medical professionals at the front line, enabling those in stable countries to help and allowing one doctor to have an overview over many patients.

Our Ventilator is now in testing and we are finalizing fine air control. Parts cost for a single unit are 300$ but will drop in mass production and bulk ordering maybe even down to 200$.

Our roadmap consists of 4 Versions which can be deployed over the internet. It is envisaged that the Ventilator will be assembled by qualified volunteers, go through centralized quality control and then distributed to places of greatest needs on an international basis. Once enough funding is raised, a part of the workload will be outsourced to specialized companies.
