We are part of an international consortium of emergency ventilator designers. Groups from all parts of the world jump on a daily call at noon Hawaii time. Today we heard awesome news! One of the groups got the first FDA approval for emergency use.Read more “Coventor Congratulations”
Tackling manometers and other sensors, lab testing, custom covers, and other things. It may not seem like a big deal but it is taking us hours each day to call around and find manufacturers that have parts we can buy. Designing something in two weeks is already hard. Doing that when the world is out of stock of many things adds to the fun. May the supply gods look down on us favorably this week…we plan to start production in days.Read more “Hunting for Parts”
With the team in different locations, we’ve use Google Hangouts from day one to coordinate our daily Kahanu engineering meetings and to engineer various parts. This has been tricky since we have to split up hardware to Oahu, Maui, and California, run tests, then ship overnight to the next team member. Usually just one of us has hardware in hand. The rest of use have to use our imagination. It’s not especially efficient but we are making this remote team work.
