Due to the COVID-19, the demand for reparatory ventilators stays undiminished high. These two concept designs are made as a response to the ongoing crisis. The machines are designed in a way that there is no need for technical knowledge in order to assemble them.

 The first ventilator is made completely out of cut and pressed metal and can be ordered as a building kit straight from the technical drawings. No special tools are required for assembly.

The second ventilator is designed in a way, so that all components can easily be printed by a standard format 3D printer.

The simple way of producing the components gives the opportunity to produce the ventilators in large numbers, everywhere in the world.
