Multi-tier Low-cost Ventilator Research, Development & Prototyping
In partnership with Rice University Engineering, we are creating the next-generation of HALO-class (high-acuity limited-operability) ventilators.
Our efficient, inexpensive, and life-saving designs will be an open-source effort in the global response to offset the deficit of ventilators cause by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 1st-generation automatic bag-valve-mask (AutoBVM) was developed by a talented team of Rice University students and Dr. Rohith Malya, who have made their innovative design open-source for maximal global access and social impact. Their work went on to inspire the more recent versions of our AutoBVMs.
Our long-term vision for APOLLO is a global ventilator solution that removes barriers to access for global surgery and anesthesia for 2 billion people worldwide.
