Conf 21 | Mechatronics at the service of health: case study on the development of a prototype for the emergency production of artificial respirators

Nov 30, 2022 | 3:35 PM - 4:00 PM

Salle A


The health crisis of 2020 had a violent impact on hospitals, resulting in a lack of availability of staff and equipment, particularly ventilators used for respiratory assistance. Faced with this concern, the Geneva Hospitals contacted HEPIA with a specific request: to produce 20 devices in a short time. Thanks to its know-how in mechatronics, HEPIA will explain how it was able to respond to this request in record time, putting its research teams to work to produce the "GEVE" (Geneva ventilator) prototype.
