Technologies for improved delivery of supplemental oxygen
Tech Brief: Roboventilator is a low-cost high-functional and portable ventilator capable of delivery therapy, diagnosis and oxygen, in the hospital, in the home and in the field. It transmits information allowing for remote access. This is our beach-head technology for all sorts of oxygen deliveries theraputics and diagnostics.
FIGURES OF MERIT Value Proposition: This technology is transformal in that 1. It is low-cost and yet nearly as functional as a hospital ventilator costing 10x the RoboVent 2. Portable, so it can be used anywhere, with the stretch goal of it working on a moving patient 3. Information / AI - It can transmit information and collectively the units can serve as a front end for future diagnosis 4. Remote control use - so the RoboVent can be used anywhere 5. Sourced from easy-to-obtain parts so it is not critically dependent on a brittle supply chain - this was a problem we observed during the first surge of the pandemic - we sould not build ventilators and other medical devices because they are required difficult-to-obtain components 6. Easy to Use
