About the Project
Our goal is to develop a library of reviewed, quality, DIY or open source ventilators that can be produced during emergencies as a ventilator for patients needing respiratory intervention when hospital ventilator resources are being triaged. First we are designing and building an inexpensive ventilator for our partners in Guatemala using components they can source locally or that we can easily provide.
We have three designs in progress, and each has initial prototypes. We're writing software and finishing the prototypes, and working through quality efforts following established guidelines in parallel.
We need volunteers to help with embedded software, and to build a website with functionality similar to Thingiverse. We could use assistance and advice from anyone with experience designing ventilators or from medical professionals such as respiratory therapists or pulmonologists. We also need some help with non-profit PR and fundraising.
