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 in widespread use even though you might not have heard about them a lot. During operations, in transport to the hospital and during lung diseases such as COVID-19 Ventilators show up in one form or another. Remote interactions are being introduced into the medical field at a rapid pace which brings with it certain challenges in the usability of devices.

We are looking for a UX professional who wants to gain experience in the important field of telemedicine to use their UX experience to save lives and reduce the cost of healthcare for the end user.

Since August we had a small UX team of four researchers and designers and one engineer that has researched and developed a web-based user interfaced for practitioners to monitor the patient from afar, setup automation rules, review and plan treatments and communicate with the patients and other doctors. To receive regulatory approval we need to create the appropriate design and design control documents. It is wrong to think of regulatory documentation as mere paperwork that needs to be done, it is a guideline to guarantee a safe and successful product providing that the guideline has been implemented properly. A skill that is highly searched for in this world where user experience is becoming more and more important.

To get a sense of what will be needed to be done in this role, please have a look at this short guide.

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.
