JFD wins at Collaborate to Innovate Awards 2020!
05 February 2021
JFD have been named as joint winner in the Healthcare & Medical - COVID response category at the Collaborate to Innovate awards for InVicto™ ventilator.
InVicto™ was created in response to the UK government’s ventilator challenge in 2020.
Whilst the project was initiated by JFD, collaboration was instrumental given that a number of technology gaps were identified and time was of the essence. In order to utilise experts from a range of fields to create the ventilator, a consortium value chain was created which was initially based on skill sets and then matured into specific organisations. These were Frazer-Nash Consultancy, Angus 3D Solutions, Medical Devices Unit (MDU), Narayana Health and Innovhealth.
The InVicto™ ventilator is more advanced than CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) systems. The InVicto™ system can support global healthcare services by reducing pressure on intensive care unit (ICU) facilities, helping to save lives as the virus continues to peak in many countries.
