History & Development

AmboVent, an open-source automatically controlled medical ventilator device, was designed by a team of Israeli engineers and medical experts as a response to the worldwide shortages in mechanical ventilation devices due to the COVID-19 respiratory disease epidemic outbreak caused by Coronavirus.

The AmboVent respirator was engineered for mass-production at low costs, using off-the-shelf components removing the need for intricate assembly lines. The device's entire blueprints, mechanical & electrical designs, source-codes, and medical/engineering test reports were published on GitHub as open-source hardware and software on the evening of 1 April 2020.
