JFD wins at the Collaborate to Innovate Awards 2020!
We are delighted to announce that we have been named as joint winner in the Healthcare & Medical - COVID response category at the Collaborate to Innovate awards for InVictoTM ventilator.
InVicto™ was created in response to the UK government’s ventilator challenge in 2020, we are very proud of this innovative product and being listed as a winner in this category is a testament to the product.
Whilst the project was initiated by JFD, collaboration was instrumental given that a number of technology gaps were identified and time was of the essence. In order to utilise experts from a range of fields to create the ventilator, a consortium value chain was created which was initially based on skill sets and then matured into specific organisations. These were Frazer-Nash Consultancy, Angus 3D Solutions, MDU, Narayana Health and Innovhealth.
The InVicto™ ventilator is more advanced than CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) systems. The InVicto™ system can support global healthcare services by reducing pressure on intensive care unit (ICU) facilities, helping to save lives as the virus continues to peak in many countries.
