The Vent2Life platform was created for all the interested parties, public or private, collective or individual, to find ventilators and medical equipment in Portugal not currently in use or in need of repair. Broken equipment can be reported at Vent2life official website – here – or by phone at +351 210 202 840.
This project has been made possible with the cooperation of specialists from Ordem dos Engenheiros Portugueses, Instituto Superior de Engenharia do Porto, Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia da NOVA and NOVA Medical School.
The platform came alive with the work of 24 volunteers as well as a volunteer OutSystems team.
- Strengthen the NHS with approximately 200 ventilators (currently not in use)
- Replicate the project at a European level
