Canadian who developed a low-cost ventilator makes his design available for free
Amid a critical shortage of ventilators globally, Strupat's prototype could be patented for lucrative financial returns. However, the London, ON man's selfless decision is what makes him one of today's Health Care Heroes. Going open source with his designs will allow manufacturers worldwide to begin production as soon as possible.
His design costs about $500 per unit—a fraction of the $25,000 design currently used at Canadian hospitals.
