MVM, a novel mechanical ventilator

Designed for rapid mass production in response to the COVID-19 pandemic

Mechanical Ventilator Milano (MVM) is a novel mechanical ventilator designed for rapid mass production in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to address the urgent shortage of intensive therapy ventilators in many countries, and the growing difficulty in procuring these devices through normal supply chains across borders. It requires only oxygen (or medical air) and electricity and can be operated with simple instructions.
