Battling Covid-19: Mahindra Readies High Spec Ventilators


Pune: The country’s biggest SUV maker Mahindra and Mahindra is ready to deliver its promise of much-needed medical equipment required to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

The company has channelled its resources into making face shields, masks, aerosol boxes, affordable ventilators and now a high-spec ventilator. The automaker, along with Bengaluru-based healthcare partner Skanray, has simplified ventilator designs and helped in scaling up capacity.

MD Pawan Goenka tweeted on Friday that the high-spec ventilator is ready for production. He said there isn’t an immediate requirement for these ventilators, and wished that such a critical situation never arose when it will be required.

Chairman Anand Mahindra echoed Dr Goenka’s feelings and appreciated the hard work.

Earlier, the company readied a low-cost prototype of an automated version of the Bag Valve Mask ventilator (commonly known as Ambu bag).
