The Eva Ventilator was designed and developed by the leading Medical Device designers at Team Consulting, working closely with Engineering, Planning, Manufacturing and Supply Chain Specialists at Cogent Technology.
Iain Ansell, Head of Surgical, at Team Consulting stated the main objective: “From the outset, EVA has been designed to meet government specifications. To allow the fastest possible delivery and to minimise supply chain risk, we based our design on an established ventilator made in the UK by Diamedica Ltd. The ventilator needed to be appropriate for mass manufacture and built from components which could be readily acquired, avoiding competition for materials and components commonly used in other ventilators. During that time, the specification continued to evolve (in response to clinicians’ feedback on their experiences treating COVID-19 patients) and throughout the 6-week project, the EVA design was iterated to keep up with those changes.”
