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.

We are confident that we have identified the requirements for all the parts of the ventilator. As soon as we have gathered enough funding we want to begin ordering these parts and assemble the ventilators. We need help to communicate with cost-effective part suppliers from all over the world and create a database of suppliers with their individual price offers so that we can verify our estimated ventilator production cost.

Almost all of the components for the ventilator are off-the-shelf components normally used in other products. Most of these items come from China. Each type of component may be manufactured in totally different factories thus necessitating the acquisition of the components that meet the criteria for an appropriate price. These components will then be distributed in accordance with the Manufacturing Manager's directions to the appropriate staff who will carry out relevant subassembly and final assembly until the numbers being manufactured a large enough to occur in a contract assembly manufacturing division probably in China.

Tasks:

  • identify potential suppliers
  • begin negotiations (mandarin of advantage)
  • Search for similar but cheaper parts that meet system requirements as well (electrical basics necessary)

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.
