IIT-H incubated startup creates emergency ventilator

Apr 04, 2020 10:49 IST

Aerobiosys Innovations, an IIT Hyderabad incubated start-up, has created a portable, emergency use ventilator to aid the fight against the novel coronavirus. The low-cost ventilator, called Jeevan Lite, can be operated through a phone application and is battery-operated, with a capacity to function for five hours without power supply. The device will be priced at Rs 1 lakh and the company has plans to produce at least 50-70 units per day. Jeevan Lite will be able to perform invasive and non invasive ventilation and is suitable for both adult and pediatric patients, the company said.
