We are in the process of building an international team for the purposes of addressing the shortage of ventilators and medical professionals in relation to the current crisis. (COVID 19)

We have set up a trust in New Zealand for this purpose as the organization founder resides in New Zealand.

What we are needing is legal support with regards to managing the risk in relation to the ventilators we are manufacturing, volunteer medical professionals together with other support individuals. We also need to be indemnified against the actions or in-actions of our volunteers, and protect our volunteers from unfair liability as well. All risk factors need to be isolated.

We are not selling the ventilators but will make them available in the context of a charitable trust. We need to be indemnified against the end users particularly since a large percentage of those needing ventilation are going to die with others suffering long-term injury as a result of the virus and possibly treatment injury. It is well known that improper use of a ventilator can also cause harm. End user agreements need to be produced.

We are also accepting financial contributions which of course needs to be managed safely.
A legal qualification with qualification/experience in dealing with medic-o-legal matters, volunteer staff, international law, contract law, limiting liability and suchlike.

If you feel you have the knowledge and skills necessary to assist with this position and you are interested in volunteering with us, please apply directly through our organization here: https://jira.ardenmed.com/plugins/servlet/loginfreeRedirMain?portalid=11&request=100

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.
