As the Coronavirus continues to sweep across countries around the world, a group of innovators known as the PillarTribe came up with the Oxipros, an open-source Oxygen concentrator anyone can build.
The Oxipros provides immediate access of up to 24 liters per minute (LPM) of O2 with 92% concentration. The current target oxygen saturation range recommended for COVID-19 patients is between 92-96%.
Creating a path to the best care possible
From providing a cost-effective Oxygen concentrator to creating an exceptional virtual care for patients, our approach to innovation put people’s needs first.
We started with an understanding of the recent reality of the world and knowing the challenges of the healthcare industry that can affect the ability to deliver high-quality care to patients in need.
Save Trillions of Lives
- Offload 50-75% of demand off the healthcare system
- Send concentrators to patients’ homes w/ remote Telehealth monitoring
- ROX algorithm to predict hrs ahead to send critical patients to hospital
- Less deaths, catch them early- Less infected healthcare pros
- Easy to build designs even 16 year olds can assemble using common and locally found parts
iOT Hub Will Deliver the Following Features
- A self regulating oxygen concentrator using the “Apollo” open source oxygen concentrator code that can work with any concentrator on the market, both new and used.
- Automated flow rate of the oxygen concentrator based on the oxygen saturation level reading from a Bluetooth pulse oximeter.
- Through wifi, device data from the pulse oximeter and concentrator automatically upload to the Global Telehealth Services
- Remote Devices Monitoring Telehealth Platform.
- Doctors remotely monitor and have Telehealth video calls with patients who use the GTS app on their smartphone.
Imagine a design free to the world
Well, Imagine no more. This solution exists now and has been proven to work. A few 16 year old high school youth raised $1,000 using gofundme.com in less than 24 hours to build the Oxipros O₂ concentrator.
They then went to www.Oxipros.com and bought parts listed from local hardware stores and online.
They followed the step by step video instructions.
They downloaded the free code from the website onto a laptop. Then used a common basic usb cable to connect the laptop to the small Arduino Nano 33 iOT hub, an all in one computer chip to operate the Oxipros.
