A Bengaluru-based technology firm has created a low-cost ventilator that requires no electricity.
It is priced at around Rs 2,500. The ventilator is the cheapest of its kind in the world.
The equipment requires zero electricity to function and no imported components for its production. The ventilator maintains pressure and also controls oxygen to maintain controlled breathing rate.
The equipment has been created by Bengaluru-based company Dynamatic Tech. They manufacture highly engineered products for automotive, aeronautic and security applications. Amid the coronavirus crisis, this is exactly what the world needs to tackle the challenge.
