Dyson’s CoVent Ventilator Eases The Burden On Worldwide Medical Providers

Apr 1, 2020

Category: News

James Dyson has become a household name for a handful of reasons, but he certainly didn’t become one of the world’s most well-known billionaires without the utilization of his brilliant mind. Now, Dyson’s founder has confirmed that his company, Dyson Ltd., has been contracted by the UK government to create 10,000 ventilators in support of the National Health Service — a project that was put into motion in under 10 days.

Throughout the world, and especially during these trying times, medical professionals are struggling to keep up with the demand for supplies, technology, and peripherals to provide care for their patients. As one of the world’s leading manufacturers, Dyson was contacted by UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, to aid in the effort for COVID-19 care. Citing the company’s ability to create these new ventilators “quickly, efficiently, and at volume,” Dyson’s engineers and designers devised the CoVent — a sleek piece of purposeful tech aimed at the revitalization and support of patients’ breathing faculties. Alongside the 10,000 units originally contracted by the UK, the company has also pledged to donate 5,000 alternatives to other critical areas of the world where citizens have been affected by the virus. Dyson’s CoVent ventilators are slated for release in early April.
