RPD is proud to be working with experts from Imperial College London‘s departments of Bioengineering and Surgery and Cancer to produce a simple, low-cost, high-performance emergency ventilator, to assist the fight against COVID-19.

Our team are collaborating with TestWorks and other partners worldwide to produce assembly-line prototypes in early May to be taken to regulators for full global compliance.

We’ve been focusing on developing a production solution that will allow for licensing of the manufacturing process within current compliance constraints. The aim is to support local production operations to help affected countries in the fight against the novel Coronavirus.

Not only could this project help offer a solution to ventilator shortages worldwide, particularly for health services in developing countries, but the straightforward design using off-the-shelf parts helps avoid supply-chain bottlenecks and ramp up production at speed.
