Tactile + AirMid: Ventilator ConceptApril 29, 2020
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, it continues to be a challenge procuring additional medical supplies and equipment—particularly ventilators to help critical care patients suffering from the virus. Tactile recently partnered with AirMid Critical Care Products, Inc. to quickly develop a safe and low-cost ventilator concept that could fill a void in the current market. The concept is built upon AirMid’s existing technology and includes an additional air control mechanism to provide similar benefits of a mechanical ventilator at hospitals. And just announced last week, AirMid won a U.S. Army contest, xTech COVID-19 Ventilator Challenge, where they were awarded $100K for further research. We’re so excited about AirMid’s win and honored to have been a part of a design collaboration that will impact the lives during this unprecedented medical crisis. Congrats AirMid and the design team!
