Oxygen Concentrator for Low-Resource Settings
Program: Mechanical Engineering
COVID-19 has unrelentingly ravaged the world for the past year. Oxygen therapy through oxygen tanks is the most common treatment for COVID-19, however oxygen tanks have become scarce in low-resource settings. But there is another option: oxygen concentrators.
We are Mechanical Engineering Senior Design team PRIME21 working with our sponsor, Luke Chow from Prime Manufacturing Technologies, to create an oxygen concentrator for low-resource settings.
