An innovation that could save lives: With 3D printing instructions for a simplified ventilator, the Technical University of Aachen wants to prevent bottlenecks at hospitals. As the Corona pandemic progresses, there could be ventilator shortages in German hospitals.

The pump from RWTH Aachen University can operate ventilators that are normally operated manually. The device, including power supply and electric motor, can be produced within one day. Volunteers are already being sought to help with production.
