We were inspired by an existing FDA approved automatic resuscitator device that was very simple but had mediocre manufacturability and lacked independent PEEP adjustment.

What it does

ClipVent is a pressure cycled ventilation device that operates in pressure control or pressure support mode. ClipVent also incorporates independent PEEP pressure adjustment and features extremely simple injection mold tooling design.

How I built it

Design of ClipVent was carried out using the OnShape online CAD design tool, and prototyped using Formlabs 3D printers.

Challenges I ran into

There are a couple of components that are challenging to prototype in-house on a limited budget. After several iterations we were able to produce functional components.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We have demonstrated a working prototype and are in discussions with potential distributors.

What's next for ClipVent

We are seeking funding to complete development of ClipVent and bring the device to market.
