TransPod inventor Ryan Janzen led the company's new strategic decision to manufacture ventilators for COVID-19. Innovative new features are part of this new TransPod ventilator, taking advantage of new features from the vehicle design and life-support systems.
The strategic decision to manufacture this ventilator was made for the following reasons:
1. Contribute to tackling the COVID-19 crisis by leveraging TransPod's aerospace experience and medical expertise.
2. Take advantage of the similarities between the aerospace industry and the medical industry with regard to the quality management system and certification process.
3. Development of long-term strategic products, to diversify the company's activities and add another source of income to reduce the risk in the face of the current economic crisis.
