Helpful Engineering

Helpful Engineering is seeking volunteers experts in Medical Device Quality/Regulatory Assurance. We have two volunteer positions open for experts in Medical Device Quality/Regulatory Assurance:

A QA/RA Lead for the Tetra project

Description: We are looking for a lead to make sure that our project complies with all best practices with respect to both quality and regulatory requirements. Our current device is a Class II accessory for a ventilator, and we have ideas for other devices in the pipeline. You will be responsible for letting us know how to enact these practices and for enabling our ability to perform them as easily and seamlessly as possible. This role will be at whatever capacity you have available; if you can provide us with a great deal of help, that will be very welcome, but if you can only provide advice and periodic guidance, then that will still be a huge step up from what we have now. Our current team is well versed in manufacturing, mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, and software engineering, with document writing and product and project management. What we will need most is help making sure we can pass FDA muster. (More here: https://tinyurl.com/yym984jp )

Mission Statement

Helpful Engineering is an international, open source community incubator focused on mobilizing people to help solve the Covid-19 pandemic and other critical issues. With thousands of volunteers worldwide, we support projects through innovations in engineering, community resources, software, and manufacturing.

Description

Helpful Engineering is a 3,400 strong volunteer-run nonprofit incubator organization, with engineers, scientists, and doctors around the world dedicated to helping the world address the COVID-19 pandemic. Relying on the resourcefulness and grit of our members, we work to design innovative ways to fight the virus that causes this disease. We have partnered with medical professionals to know what would help them the most in this crisis, rapidly trying to design and arrange the production of pragmatic devices to move life-saving air, extend existing tools, or organize volunteers on the ground to bolster medical workers. The need is critical. Important but complex rules usually make these products unavailable, if unburdened, we can make them available now.
