Today, Hakob Arshakyan, the Minister of High-Tech Industry, said in a Facebook post that the first Armenian-made lung ventilators are ready for clinical research, certification and production.
His post runs as follows,
“Armenian-made artificial respiration equipment is fully ready for clinical trials, certification and production.
Last year, within the framework of the government program, the process of developing artificial respiration devices in Armenia was launched jointly with the Engineering Association.
The presented device is a complex engineering system, which replaces the human respiratory system with the necessary volumes with the help of air volume և pressure control algorithms.
As a result of the cooperation with the American NASA JPL laboratory, you can see that 5 copies of the devices are already ready, undergoing tests for further certification and production.
Congratulations to the Engineering Association, the Engineering City, the EIA Engineering Company, and the Armenian engineering community for their success.
