CAPE TOWN, South Africa – MMO, a Unique Group company, has completed beta testing of its in-house-designed Uni-Life 100, a non-invasive positive pressure ventilation system.
Developed in conjunction with the technical expertise and production support of Unique Group, the system has been specifically created to aid African authorities in their efforts to provide mass treatment to patients across the continent who are displaying COVID-19-related symptoms.
With the initial production batch of 10,000 units planned, the Uni-Life 100 system can be mass produced as a light-weight, modular and rapidly distributed alternative to other ventilator systems available.
The system uses continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) architecture, incorporating a compact gas blending and supply system which provides a therapeutic mixture of air and enriched oxygen, adjusted to a patient’s requirements. The system includes an inflatable, transparent vinyl hood which is placed over the patient’s head, thereby allowing them to comfortably breathe the therapeutic air.
