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 have created an interface for our ventilator (http://www.ardenvent.com/ventilators) but now it needs to be filled with the right presets, recommendations, descriptions etc. and be optimized for everyday hospital and even homecare usage.

We need somebody who has hands-on experience with COVID-19 and knows the best practices that are currently being applied but is aware of which of these best practices are based on first principles and which on assumptions and less conclusive observations.

You can also help if you have the ability to communicate COVID-19 related information very clearly and internationally unambiguous (e.g. what does FiO2 mean) so that freshly trained or poorly educated caregivers in developing countries have the chance to develop an understanding of the treatment process and be more effective in saving lives. To consider these cases of freshly trained people we have included a description about settings and readings in as many places as possible and want to create a treatment manual where caregivers can look up what to do in certain situations.

In this opportunity, you would be closely collaborating with our interface team to also improve the usability of the interface to make it more intuitive and help design other screens such as patient management, emergency patient briefings, patient history views and treatment planning.

Minimal requirements

  • 5 years hands-on healthcare experience

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.
