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.

Ventilators are not only important for critical care units, but some noninvasive modes (which our device of course supports) can benefit patients in mild cases to recover more quickly and lower the chance of a bad outcome. Beyond the pandemic, Ventilators are a critical part of the medical treatment chain and many developing countries are underresourced with capable and affordable ventilators.

We are getting closer to finalizing our MK2 Ventilator and are finishing circuitry for it. However, MK3 is what we truly want to go into mass production with. Contrary to the modular, off-the-shelf MK2 version, MK3 Version aims at being more cost-efficient and faster to manufacture. We, therefore, need another experienced PCB designer who could help our current electrical engineer to design the PCB of MK3.
This would result in higher confidence in our product which would make fundraising much easier but would obviously also contribute to a more reliable and affordable medical device, ultimately leading to more lives saved.
If you fulfil at least the minimal requirements please don't hesitate to contact us and learn more about the project.

Minimal Requirements:

  • 2+ years experience with circuits
  • created a PCB for commercial use before
Optimal Requirements:
  • experience with circuits in medical devices
  • experience with version control and design control
  • 10+ years heterogenous circuitry experience
  • experience with supply Acquisition

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.
