Session | Heroes of Rapid Product Development and Manufacturing – The Ventilator Project
Presented by Tyler Mantel, Co-Founder and President of The Ventilator Project
Robotics entrepreneur Tyler Mantel has halted work on his own startup to deal with the COVID-19 crisis. He founded The Ventilator Project to provide a solution to the growing shortage of ventilators around the world. With a team of over 250 volunteers, he developed AIRA, an easily scalable ventilator that uses materials from outside the biomedical supply chain. It comes under the EUA designation, and plans are to immediately engage procurement and manufacturing partners to begin production once approved. To reduce costs, the team integrated supply chain and manufacturability at all levels of the design process, reducing reliance on medical supply lines. Come hear Tyler talk about how he put together his team, iterated his 4e prototype in just two weeks, and the current status of the project undergoing regulatory process.
