FDA Approves U of M’s “Coventor” Design
MINNEAPOLIS -- A Minnesota school has designed a new tool to help fight COVID-19.
On Wednesday the FDA’s Emergency Covid Authority approved the design of a new ventilator called the Coventor.
Governor Tim Walz says the inexpensive design created by a team from the University of Minnesota will help more ventilators get into the hands of healthcare professionals who need them.
It's a new, low-cost ventilator aimed at helping clinicians in settings where you can't usually get a ventilator.
The Coventor was funded by the university’s Rapid Response Grant. The specifications will be available online for manufacturers all over the world to produce the equipment.
