We are working to provide an immediate response for emergency ventilator needs during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond. Our team of world-class engineers and emergency preparedness experts including doctors, first responders and disaster experts that have developed a simple, scalable and portable emergency ventilator that requires no electricity and called ARMEE™ (see ARMEEVent.com). The project is being managed by the Interstate Disaster Medical Collaborative (IDMC.us), a non-profit organization.
We need your help to support this important project. ARMEE™ is a 3D printable, injection moldable or machinable ventilator that is imminently ready for our team to give to the world We are prepared to provide the plans and schematics of this device to manufacturers large and small who have production capabilities..
ARMEE™ is economical to build with an estimated cost of under $100 per unit. It can be mass-produced in a matter of days and weeks, increasing timely access by front line medical experts. Tens of thousands of these devices can up and running within days and in weeks, even more.
Your gift will provide funding for much-needed testing equipment, programming and server tools, as well as will help to cover manufacturing costs.
Our experts believe ARMEE™ can help fill the gap in the lack of standard ventilator) and to provide options for emergency operations. The device requires no electricity and has no moving parts.
You generous support will allow us to purchase materials for prototypes so medical centers can begin testing on simulation equipment and will give our experts the tools needed to monitor the devices produced for quality and safety.
The purpose of the ARMEE™ device is to bridge gaps and to provide an immediately deployable emergency option for mechanical ventilation to first responders, and emergency medical personnel in situations where access to standardized ventilation is either unavailable or inoperable due to disaster conditions, lack or resources or due to remote or under developed locations.
We continue to maximize the enthusiasm of our all-volunteer group of experts to help keep costs down and maximize the value of your generous contributions,
We thank you for your amazing support of this program.
The ARMEE™ ventilation device, which stands for “Automatic Respiration Management Exclusively for Emergencies” is based on technology developed in the 1960s by Harry Diamond Laboratories for the U.S. Army. In 2019, NASA published a paper on oscillators similar to ARMEE™. Experts believe the simply-designed ventilator, which requires no electricity, works by harnessing fluid dynamics and contains no moving parts can provide a much needed emergency solution for responders and healthcare providers. ARMEE™ can bridge the gap to provide critically-needed ventilators during the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S. and around the world and an emergency solution for future healthcare challenges.
