Seeking engineers, innovators, designers, and makers to produce rapidly deployable mechanical ventilators
Deadline : 2020-06-23
The rate of COVID-19 spread and peak is influenced by social separation, good hygiene, and adequate quarantining of infected individuals. The goal of the CoVent-19 Challenge is to increase the capacity of hospitals to provide mechanical ventilation. Our answer will be a rapidly deployable ventilation solution that we can use to close the gap between those in need and our actual resources in settings around the world. Founded by residents at Massachusetts General Hospital, the CoVent-19 Challenge will be a completely virtual open moonshot competition hosted on GrabCAD to develop a rapidly deployable mechanical ventilation solution. We appreciate all of the advice and buzz that we are hearing from all parts of our global community.
