Heart warming to see collaboration between Stanford and Utah universities to come up with ventilators to serve all at an affordable cost in a decentralized way. Always amazed by M. Prakash’s work to make technology accessible to all. This is a testimony to professor Neil Gershenfeld’s mission as M. Prakash was his student at MIT. The Fab Lab network can be a force for good in this unusual and uncertain time.
Proud to be part of it.
Vent 4 Us:
Our goal is to develop a simple, mass manufacturable, ventilator that supports COVID-19 patients globally.
We are developing an open-source ventilator that can support a COVID19 patient throughout the treatment and yet is simple to manufacture and can be built easily only using components that are available in large quantities, supplied in industries like automotive parts to avoid any reliance on already broken medical supply chains.
We are a dedicated team of clinicians, engineers, designers, industry partners and veterans of medical ventilator industry and frugal innovation including ABEL Lab, University of Utah and PrakashLab, Stanford who have all come together to tackle the shortage of ventilators. Our group is nimble, open minded and grounded in patient care and open-hardware design philosophy.
