UK Government Ventilator Challenge

Zephyr Plus Ventilator development

On March 18th, the Government put out a call for UK businesses to support in the development of life-saving ventilators, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. With our experience of getting medical devices to market, Kinneir Dufort’s multi-disciplinary team quickly became one of the key partners in the development of the Zephyr Plus Ventilator. Working rapidly and collaboratively with Babcock and fellow partners, in a matter of months we had collectively developed a ventilator that passed MHRA regulations.

On August 17th, the Babcock ventilator team was awarded the President’s Special Award for Pandemic Service, by the Royal Academy of Engineering. Watch the video below to find out more.
