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.
