Respirators for all

VentilatorPAL is a not-for-profit solution to the acute lack of respirators for the rapidly growing number of COVID-19 patients around the world.

VentilatorPAL is a high-quality but low-cost, open source ventilator that can be bought or built by anyone for a fraction of the cost of commercial ventilators.

Order yours today or download the schematics later this week to build your own. Or donate to support us as we design, test and manufacture ventilators for the global community.

Medical professionals

VentilatorPAL turns a respirator into an automated ventilator with a digital interface for setting Tidal Volume (TV), Inhale/Exhale ratio (I/E) and Respiratory Rate (RR).

Our VentilatorPAL

VentilatorPAL was designed to meet the requirements of doctors at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19. It gives them sufficient functionality and flexibility to treat patients when more fully-fledged and complex ventilators are not available. This can mean the difference between life and death.
