HP, Leitat and Seat develop the first industrializable field respirator
HP, Leitat (Tecnio), Seat and the Free Zone Consortium (CZFB), together with CatSalut, through the Terrassa Health Consortium (CST) and the Hospital Parc Taulí de Sabadell -Barcelona, Spain-, have managed to create the first industrializable field respirator prepared to support hospitals and ICUs. This is encouraging news in an environment where there was concern about a shortage of medical supplies to combat the COVID-19 virus.
Leitat has designed a field respirator manufactured using 3D technology that is industrially scalable, allowing a production capacity of between 50 and 100 units per day. Magí Galindo, senior engineer at Leitat, has carried out the design, which has been medically validated by Dr. Lluís Blanch, director of Innovation at the Parc Taulí Hospital in Sabadell, an expert in mechanical ventilation.
In this field respirator called Leitat 1, its design and components have been simplified to the maximum in order to develop a useful but less complex medical device, to enable more agile production and assembly.
Leitat is a Technological Center that develops more than 215 projects in the fields of biotechnology, health, advanced materials, industrial chemistry, renewable energy and new production processes, including R & D & i solutions in packaging. Enviar comentarios
