We design and manufacture hospital-grade ventilators and also select, train and engage laid-off tailors to mass produce 3PLY face masks
Our ventilator design is based on intermittent positive pressure being controlled and monitored by Arduino microcontroller using android operating system as the interface to monitor and adjust beat rate per minute, with pressure sensor and oxygen and air pressure mixture.
While our face masks are 3-ply pleated lightweight, breathable material with a Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE) of > 99%. Meets or exceeds ASTM 1 standards and is available in earloop or tie on with flexible nosepiece.
What is the need are you focusing on?
In Africa there is chronic shortage of critical PPE and ventilators needed to fight coronavirus. Central African Republic has just three ventilators for its 5m people. In Burkina Faso there are 11 machines for 19m citizens, while Sierra Leone has 18 for a population of 7.5m. There is an enormous gap in the numbers of ventilators needed and as western countries scramble to manufacture or buy tens of thousands of ventilators to cope with the influx of coronavirus patients, it is increasingly clear that many African countries to help the severely ill breathe. In Nigeria, the story is even worse because of our huge population; there are few facilities on the continent with the potential capacity to produce face masks and ventilators. International suppliers are focusing on supplying hospitals at home. Unfortunately, countries that used to supply Africa with equipment to fight outbreaks are also challenged, hence Africa must rise up and develop the technology and capacity from within
