PV1000 - The People's Ventilator

Designed to save lives

With the PV1000 – The People’s Ventilator – we aim to create an intensive care ventilator which is simple and robust in its components. It shall be used wherever more complex ventilators are short of supply.

While consistently using available materials, we are able to produce the PV1000 cost-efficiently. At the same time, the functionality of the PV1000 will meet the requirements of intensive care ventilation.

  • Robust
  • Cost-efficient
  • Suitable for intensive medical ventilation
