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.

At this stage, we are still technically within the prototype phase and need further refinements in preparation for mass production. the COVID 19 disaster appears to have no limits on the extent and importance of this project and significance in the context of world history.

To effectively move forward with our mission, we are in need of a medical professional, experienced specifically in the gas transfer of Lung/blood supply. In order to maximize the effectiveness of the treatment, our ventilator tries to gather as much low-cost information as possible that might give us an indication of patient status and disease progression. With enough patient information and deep learning algorithms, previously unknown relationships might become clearer. Such insight would progress the knowledge about COVID-19 and respiratory medicine as a whole. One of the tasks is to determine low-cost data sources that might possibly be worthwhile to include during machine learning.

Even inserting molecules and analyzing the exhaled air for traces of that might be considered to gain knowledge about the pulmonary system, comparable to the latest breakthroughs in the microbubble technique which has been shown to indicate vasodilation.

To find such creative solutions we need a professional with the ability to utilize the approach from the safe and reliable gas transfer requirements innovating all the way in order to achieve the lowest possible cost with the maximum rate of manufacturing capabilities while managing an acceptable level of risk given this current emergency.


Additionally preferred experience/knowledge:
- FDA approval process - specifically under emergency conditions
- Knowledge of any additional internationally recognized approvals

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.
