Open Source Ventilator

Velocity Research is working with the Open Source Ventilator project to develop our Jaws concept (Concept 13) with other companies and volunteers in West Michigan. This is a ventilator that is completely open for anyone to produce and is 100% volunteer effort.  Ventilators are in very short supply and doctors all over the world are in a position to choose who lives and dies based on availability of these machines. We're working to give them another option, 100% free.

We are putting all of our commercial resources and efforts into designing and coordinating efforts on these. It is time consuming and we need help keeping our lights on while we work on this free project for the world. We will never charge for access to this design or any files to produce them. Donations here help support our team and partners, keep payroll running for our employees, and fund the material purchases and services necessary to bring this completely free design into the world and through FDA approval. We're a small company working on a massive problem as fast as we can. Every little bit helps. Thank you!
