As the world is struggling to get enough ventilators for COVID-19 patients, Dyson, the vacuum company, has chimed in with a promise of producing 10,000 ventilators for the UK.

Dyson explained in an email that was obtained by Allure that "A ventilator supports a patient who is no longer able to maintain their own airways, but sadly there is currently a significant shortage, both in the U.K. and other countries around the world,"

Dyson has refocused its resources and is working with TTP (The Technology Partnership) to design and build an entirely new ventilator. This ventilator will be named CoVent.

The design of the new Dyson ventilators

The CoVent is built around Dyson's digital motor, a component that is present in nearly all of the company's products. According to the engineer, the motor is rapidly produced. As for appearance, the CoVent is a sleek box that attaches to the side of a hospital gurney. As of now, the ventilator os waiting to be approved by the UK's government and the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency.

The UK is not the only ones that are receiving the CoVents. Dyson is planning to donate 5,000 CoVents to the international effort.

As Dyson has a keen understanding of air purity and flow, they can go into different markets. First, it was the company's hair tools (the hairdryer) and now medical equipment.

In the email, Dyson had said that the challenge was now to design and deliver a new and sophisticated medical product in volume and in an "extremely short space of time". As he said in his email, the race is now on to get the ventilators into production.
