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.
The objective is simplicity and low cost in order to stretch volunteer dollars as far as possible while not unnecessarily compromising reliability. To achieve that objective we had to innovate part of the mechanical air control. These control mechanisms now need to be optimized for their effectiveness and mass producibility. Herefore it is necessary to produce CAD models and think about how they will fit in with the rest of the ventilator. Once that is accomplished, tooling for injection moulding also has to be designed.
We also need help to accelerate the design of an oxygen concentrator.
CAD Design of fittings, flow bypasses, mixing geometries and such like
Planning of tools for mass manufacturing of plastic parts
Researching requirements for medical approval in different countries
Access to a 3D printer for prototyping
knowledge of FDA standards
knowledge about the interaction of high concentration oxygen with other materials
strong fundamental knowledge and intuition of fluid mechanics.

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

We'll work with your schedule.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
