In a world largely unprepared for the surge of Covid-19 cases that have affected communities across the globe, one of the most pressing needs has been for artificial breathing devices. Essential for the support of critically ill patients who need vital breathing support, hospitals across the globe have been scrambling to meet requirements.
With Egypt also facing the same challenge, local 3D printing enterprise Fabri Gate has stepped up to the plate and joined forces with another local initiative, Covid-19 Egypt Response Team. Recent developments in ventilator design include RapidVent, a joint project involving several departments from the University of Illinois, including The Grainger College of Engineering and Creative Thermal Solutions, a Champaign, Illinois based-company. Working hand in hand with engineers, doctors, medical professionals, designers, user-experience experts, and manufacturing experts from the industry, the new design has been successfully tested and has been licensed by more than 20 external organizations since March of this year.
Fabri Gate is now turning out ventilators based on this design to meet the need across Egypt’s hospitals, by using its skills in 3D technology. The production process meets the urgent nature of the need, and will greatly benefit the medical system at a critical time. Already known for its successful initiative of re-creating damaged reefs to support marine life, the company is throwing a spotlight on the vast range of applications available through 3D technology.
