A Low-Cost Ventilator for Low- and Middle-Income Countries
Country: Switzerland
Website: Breathe
Contact Person: Thomas Lumpe


Low- and Middle-Income Countries lack a sufficient supply of ventilators leading to sub-standard medical care.

To tackle this problem, we develop a low-cost ventilator for emergency field use, transport, and short-term critical care. For successful introduction into the market and sustainable use in low-resource settings, we take a holistic approach to design a ventilator that is intuitive to use, robust, and easy to maintain, even in harsh environments.

We further focus on capacity building by integrating the ventilator in a training platform to promote medical and technical knowledge in low-resource settings and make the use of our ventilator more accessible.

Level of development:

Prototype but not yet marketed or available for regular use
