COVID-19, open source hardware
"Welcome to Open Source Ventilator (OSV) Ireland. This project was initiated by the COVID-19 global pandemic as a result of a community discussion within a Facebook group called Open Source COVID-19 Medical Supplies (OSCMS). This group rapidly grew and currently is targeting the development of a number of different COVID-19 related medical supplies.
Our mission is to develop a Field Emergency Ventilator (FEV) system to be used in an emergency situation, where a large number of basic ventilator systems are required. We are working closely with a core design team of 20+ area experts, external organisations and other open source groups to develop a number of viable concepts for testing.
We are quickly trying to set up structures and systems to fast track the development of these solutions, organize volunteers and structure a response."
