After a much longer time than we have ever planned
What we wish to resolve
We are facing a serious threat due to COVID19. Most of the countries are suffering severe shortage of medical equipment, that cannot be produced and delivered in a short time. Ventilators are essential to keep breathing when faced with the complications of COVID19. See the information below if you want to become part of the solution.
VentilAid is a last resort device, applicable only when all other professional equipment is unavailable!
Who are we
What drives us
We are a group of engineers and designers who constantly develop and share to the public the VentilAid Project!
