NGen chooses The Winnipeg Ventilator as part of Canadian government response to the COVID-19 crisis

The Winnipeg Ventilator was chosen for design and manufacturing by a national consortium of leading engineers and manufacturers. The first phase of the project is being led by Canada’s largest medical device design company, Starfish Medical, with the goal to provide a quick solution for Canada’s shortage of ventilators. 

“Canada needs a solution to bring ICU standard ventilators to the market fast, economically and at a scale to meet the needs of this crisis,” says Jay Myers, CEO, NGen Canada. “The Winnipeg Ventilator has proven worldwide to meet those requirements as seen through its broad use and validation by the scientific community.”
