Toronto, Canada (May 6, 2020) — Yorkville Sound is working with Starfish Medical on an open-source ventilator design project to increase the number of ventilators in Canada. The pro-audio manufacturer is providing its engineering and manufacturing expertise as it collaborates in an answer to the Government of Canada’s call to action to Canadian businesses and manufacturers to help deliver critical health supplies to fight the COVID 19 pandemic.
“Our design and manufacturing team is very excited to be part of the solution during this unprecedented time,” says Steve Long, Yorkville Sound’s president. “We’re providing circuit-board design and layout, as well as the assembly of the control panel for the ventilator project. Our capable facility is quite nimble, and we are able to produce finished results quickly and with accuracy. We are dedicated to help flatten the curve and provide much needed equipment for our country’s healthcare professionals.”
Located in the Toronto area like Yorkville Sound, StarFish Medical is a full service Medical Device Design company offering design, development, and manufacturing services. John Walmsley, EVP of Strategic Relationships at Starfish Medical, added; “What better contributor to a Canadian emergency ventilator program than Yorkville Sound, whose manufacturing and production ingenuity established them at the top of the music and professional sound industry. Like other industrial contributors, Yorkville stepped in and got us the parts we needed fast.”
The ventilator project is inspired by The Winnipeg Ventilator, a project designed for ICU use and among the easiest in the world to bring into high volume production.
