Important Information for Ventilator Manufacturers

Important Information for Ventilator Manufacturers

COVID-19 has caused a significant shortage of ventilators for the most seriously ill patients. We are facing a global shortage of equipment and have precious little time to respond.
 
Electromate is a mechanical ventilator component supplier and works with a number of manufacturing partners that supply crucial components needed to build more ventilators. These include:
 
  • Linear actuators
  • Linear guides
  • Screw assemblies
  • Compact gearboxes
  • High efficiency motors
  • Motion control and drives

Our team of motion design experts are located all across Canada and are available right now to help you with any electromechanical ventilator design. If you are working on a ventilator involving rotary, linear, or any other motion, we will provide immediate help with component sourcing. Contact us today.

We are already in communication with companies that are working on ways to alieviate people fighting this virus, and encourage any other businesses working on COVID-19 solutions to reach out.

All inquiries regarding ventilator comonents or any other equipment to help battle COVID-19 are given utmost priority. You will receive a quote from us the same day as it is requested. We are able to meet a high demand in a very short time. We can also help to optimize your design quickly.

In addition to helping with the aquisition and design, we also want to make you aware of initiatives that you may be able to help with. Please read below to learn more about these programs and how you can help or donate.

 

The Montreal General Hospital Foundation, in collaboration with the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC), is launching a global innovation challenge, backed by a prize of $200,000 CAD. They are calling for teams to design a simple, low-cost, easy-to-manufacture and easy-to-maintain ventilator which could be deployed anywhere needed to save lives.

MIT has launched an emergency research project with a team of Engineers and American clinicians to address the question:

Is it possible to safely ventilate a COVID-19 patient by automatically actuating a manual resuscitator?

Their process in approaching this question is to first identify the minimum requirements for a low-cost ventilator, based on the collective wisdom of many clinicians, design against these requirements, conduct immediate testing, report the results, iterate and facilitate discussion.
