Designing a Ventilator to Fight COVID-19

ICS and RespiraWorks Team Up to Create Low-Cost, Open Source Ventilator

To help with pandemic response, we’ve partnered with RespiraWorks, a volunteer organization composed of engineers, healthcare workers and other professionals around the world, to create an inexpensive, open source ventilator for use in countries with developing economies. This medical-grade device, which can be assembled with readily available parts for less than $500, is intended to help countries cope with the anticipated second wave of the virus.
