Revel Laboratory is developing a model to 3D-print valves for ventilators
Ukrainian innovative laboratories have started to produce the personal protective equipment for doctors (face shields) and medical facilities using 3D printers.
Ukrainian startup Revel Laboratory is developing a model to 3D-print valves for ventilators used to support the novel coronavirus patients, who are physically unable to breathe.
The startup’s founders David Stavnitser and Ivan Chebotaiev decided to follow the steps of Italian 3D printing start-up Isinnova, whose ventilator valve manufacturing has already saved lives. The valves they produce allow connecting two patients to one ventilator at the same time.
The company will be able to print about 12 valves per day. According to the company’s estimates, the production of one piece will cost about Hr 50-70 ($2-3)
Revel Laboratory was founded in early 2020 in Odesa. The company has a small production that involves six 3D printers and specializes in gadget prototyping, 3D modeling, and 3D printing.
You can also support the projects by donations or by providing your printers for lab.
