John was asked this week what sets our efforts apart from the 45 or so other teams that are working on ventilators.
John Molander told them that:
We have a clean, inexpensive, portable design that is specifically designed for rapid manufacturing
We are using elements (BVM bags) that hospitals are familiar with and carry in stock (use what they already have philosophy).
We are organized with sub teams that are engaged and delivering against every element of the design to market pathway.
We are working with a large group of medical advisors and staff to get input and feedback on the device.
We have designed for FDA compliance (ISO stds, medical grade materials, sensors, etc..) We were the first group to approach the FDA for an EUA clearance of a driven BVM device.
We have a team of very competent and highly passionate individuals who flow to work issues across a wide range of fields.
