World’s 1st Respiratory Tele-Ventilator.


As a trusted embedded technology partner, we at Digital Shark Technology have developed an end-to-end medical Solution, Respiratory Tele-Ventilator for a major US based medical device manufacturer.

Business Challenge:

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted a shortage of ventilators but also a shortage of trained healthcare professionals to manage the large volume of ventilators when needed. In addition, frequent bedside visits by healthcare professionals to adjust and monitor ventilators increase the possibility of infection thereby pushing an already fragile healthcare system into a further grim situation. The Ventilator developed by Digital Shark, addresses both of these issues by enabling healthcare professionals to securely monitor and adjust ventilator settings through their online portal from any location.

Project Scope:

  • Hardware development.
  • Firmware development.
  • Cloud Architecture.
  • Web Dashboard.
  • Mobile App.
