Portable Ventilator

Newport Medical Respirator Product Design and Prototype - Before and After
A Lifesaving Innovation by Newport Medical

Newport Medical, a leading medical device manufacturer, approached us with an ambitious project: to design a small, portable ventilator that could be used in emergency situations during natural disasters such as hurricanes, floods, fires, and earthquakes. The goal was to create a device that could be easily transported and used in various settings, including wheelchairs, helicopters, planes, cars, and boats. This innovative ventilator would not only save lives during critical patient transfers but also help secure a government grant to distribute the device across major cities in the country.

Collaborative Design Process

Our team worked closely with Newport Medical’s electrical engineering team to develop a portable ventilator that met their specific requirements. We focused on creating a user-friendly device that was easy to learn and operate for both home patients and professional medics. Our scope of work included designing the user interface for each touch screen, as well as handling the back-end programming and setup for advanced technicians working on special cases.

Hot Swap Battery Backup

One of the key features of this portable ventilator is its hot swap battery backup system. This ensures that the patient remains alive during transfers to new hospitals or emergency centers, even in the most challenging circumstances. The hot swap battery backup allows for seamless transitions between power sources, minimizing the risk of interruptions in the patient’s ventilation.

A Legacy of Excellence

Newport Medical has a long history of producing high-quality medical devices with consistent results. This new portable ventilator was designed to exceed the performance of its predecessors, further solidifying the company’s reputation for excellence. The owners and management of Newport Medical were committed to growing and expanding their business, and the success of this portable ventilator played a significant role in achieving that goal.

In fact, the portable ventilator’s success led to an acquisition offer that Newport Medical simply couldn’t refuse. This groundbreaking device not only saved lives during emergencies but also contributed to the company’s growth and expansion.

In conclusion, our collaboration with Newport Medical resulted in the development of a portable ventilator that has the potential to revolutionize emergency medical care during natural disasters. Its user-friendly design, hot swap battery backup, and exceptional performance make it an invaluable tool for saving lives and ensuring the well-being of patients in critical situations.
