High-energy Ventilator (HEV)

Success Story

Application Domains

The High Energy Ventilator (HEV), first prototyped in March 2020 by a team of physicists from the LHCb collaboration, was designed as a fully functional, high-quality medical ventilator for use in and out of intensive care units. It relies on easy-to-source components and targets low cost production. Licensing agreements for the HEV are currently being put in place, including with a team of scientists in the UK and Brazil coordinated by the Daresbury Laboratory of the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), who aim to develop the HEV technology to improve access to the treatment of pulmonary lung disease in low- and middle-income countries.
