THE O2 CHALLENGE

 

Creating a local manufacturing base for "oxygen toolboxes" in Africa prior to the next predicted wave of COVID-19 infections expected in the latter part of 2020.

Oxygen Toolboxes contain:

  • Rapidly manufacturable, low cost, field serviceable oxygen concentrators; and

  • a spectrum of locally manufacturable oxygen delivery devices including nasal cannulae, oxymizers and non-rebreather masks. 

Timeline

June 2020 - O2 Challenge launch, design and early prototyping

July 2020 - design freeze, prototyping and functional testing

 

September 2020 -  production, verification, and validation

We are partnering with global leaders in medical device design and rapid manufacturing to ensure an expedited path to production of the selected oxygen concentrating and delivery devices.
