During the COVID-19 pandemic, spikes in demand for hospital respiratory equipment - much needed for COVID patients - required a rapid ramp-up of production capacities. To prevent the deaths of thousands, medical device manufacturers producing medical ventilators boosted their production output. However, with a sharp ten-fold increase in demand compared to the standard quantities that hospitals require, the manufacturers could not meet the continuously growing demand.
Here are the main reasons why:
To address the issues that prevent companies to increase the production in Europe at short notice, a group of CO-VERSATILE partners, including Demcon, Fraunhofer IML, HSSMI, SZTAKI and University of Westminster, are focusing on ramping up production of ventilators based on the DemcAir production line. The project scope includes the following:
