Additionally, we are able to meet high production demands in a very short time by utlilizing 'Medical Fast Track Programs' -firstname.lastname@example.org from maxon, and other vendors.
Many of the products we sell to the medical technology sector have ISO 13485 certification. This certification confirms that these products adhere to the fundamental requirements of medical technology and that all processes and procedures are documented, thereby guaranteeing traceability.
In addition to helping with the design and acquisition of critical components used in ventilators and respirators, we also want to make you aware of initiatives that you may be able to utilize. Please read below to learn more about these programs and how you can assist with the COVID-19 cause.
CODE LIFE VENTILATOR CHALLANGE
The Montreal General Hospital Foundation, in collaboration with the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC), is launching a global innovation challenge, backed by a prize of $200,000 CAD. They are calling for teams to design a simple, low-cost, easy-to-manufacture and easy-to-maintain ventilator which could be deployed anywhere needed to save lives.

MIT EMERGENCY VENTILATOR (E-VENT) PROJECT COPY
MIT has launched an emergency research project with a team of Engineers and American clinicians to address the question:
Is it possible to safely ventilate a COVID-19 patient by automatically actuating a manual resuscitator?
Their process in approaching this question is to first identify the minimum requirements for a low-cost ventilator, based on the collective wisdom of many clinicians, design against these requirements, conduct immediate testing, report the results, iterate and facilitate discussion.
