Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update.

We are still open and up and running this end dispatching orders.
Being a small family run business and because our workshop is not open to the public, we are more than happy to keep the business running for the moment.
Also at theĀ beginningĀ of last week, we released a concept idea of automating a Bag Valve Mask (BVM) that can been seen in the animation below.
Automating a readily available Bag Valve Mask (BVM), also known as a hand operated manual resuscitator.
This would free up the personal that would normally be need to operate a BVM.

The device could act as a stop gap in hospitals or at home where a ventilator is needed, but not currently available.
This is not a design to replace a ventilator that has a lot more features, but maybe a low-cost solution to help out.

At the moment we are looking to rapid prototype this machine in house at CNC Design and looking to work with medical professionals first to make sure that the design and use is a viable solution.

This week we have finished the CAD design of version1.1 and have ordered all the parts to create the working prototype.

We will be releasing this Automated BVM device open source, so anyone can build it or manufacture it.
