The non-profit has developed a novel mechanical ventilator specifically targeted to meet the needs of COVID-19 patients. With input from over a dozen medical doctors, engineers, and entrepreneurs, the device has been designed to work effectively at a low cost. One of the group’s members has created a ventilator prototype in less than one week – using parts purchased at Home Depot. (Image source: VentLife)</p>
