COVID-19: Distalmotion engineers contribute to easing pressure on Intensive Care Units

News & Updates

Current times call for doubling-down on collaboration, and we wanted to take a moment and recognize the efforts of Distalmotion employees who are bringing their engineering skills to a collaborative project aiming at easing the current pressure on Intensive Care Units.


Recognizing that we all have a role to play to address today’s global challenge, since April a team of Distalmotion engineers joined Covidair, an initiative aimed at rapidly developping and producing a non-invasive respiratory support machine to augment the much stretched healthcare capacities.


Covidair was launched on 10th March 2020 by Cédric Pahud  from BCD Microtechnique, who together with his team of engineers started developing and then producing non-invasive ventilation devices (respirator with mask). On 31st March 2020, 10 machines were already up and running and the team expects to have produced 160 of them in two weeks’ time.


Distalmotion is humbled to be bringing its engineering skills as a contribution to the Covidair project, while helping to facilitate the availability of the new ventilators to hospitals who need them.


As many challenges remain ahead of us, we will continue to play our part wherever we can to collaborate to the global effort as much as we can.


Together we solve.
