Project RED is a 501(c)(3) non-profit developing an affordable, highly reliable ventilator to provide life-support for anyone in the world who needs it.
Over the past year, we came a long way towards developing a proof-of-concept for an affordable, reliable, and easy-to-use ventilator. We’ve done this all on a shoe-string budget with a team entirely composed of volunteers. But taking our prototype to the next level, which involves rigorous design testing, certifications, verification/validation, manufacturing test infrastructure, production-line ramp-up, user and service manual documentation, packaging/shipping/distribution logistics etc., will require a much greater level of funding and resources beyond what we can achieve with volunteers and crowd-source funding. Additionally, with the global rollout of multiple COVID vaccines, the interest in deploying more ventilators has become less certain, further affecting the availability of funding.
We still strongly believe in the necessity to bring ventilator technology to parts of the world that cannot afford $20K ventilators, and we believe this will someday be a reality.
Thank you for your support and belief in our project and mission.
The Project RED team.
