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.


Status report:
We have set up a trust in New Zealand for this purpose as the organization founder resides in New Zealand. The Trust is set up to provide limited liability to the trustees and volunteers where all parties are acting under New Zealand's "all care, no responsibility" policy. This includes the volunteer for this position.

Description:
In the future when we have sufficient funds to build large amounts of ventilators we will be able to pay a legal expert to ensure legal protection but in the meantime, there are certain topics that need to be considered right away so that we can stay operational. The review of preliminary documents and draft of new agreements will help to protect the more than 50 volunteers that are currently working on this mission and willspeed up the process for a future full-time lawyer

Tasks:

  • review of our Non-disclosure agreement to protect the interest of the volunteers, the trustees and the trust.
  • managing risk in relation to our equipment and volunteer medical professionals
  • review of our fund management policies
  • drafting end-user agreements for use of our equipment, data usage and other eventual online services.
Training and/or experience required:
The applicant for this position is required to have a legal qualification/experience in dealing with one or ideally multiple of the following topics
  • medic-o-legal matters
  • volunteer staff
  • international law
  • contract law
  • limiting liability
Experience with New Zealand Law or nonprofits is considered a big advantage but not strictly 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.
