WAI will use its wiper motor technology to begin immediate production of medical motors to address a shortage of ventilators during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Ventilators are a key necessity in hospitals dealing with COVID-19 patients, and shortages around the world have created a challenge for manufacturers and distributors to meet these demands.
A team of WAI engineers and its global supply chain leadership, have connected with multiple ventilator manufacturing startups in order to convert WAI Wiper Motors into medical motors, driving startups ventilator designs.
Ryan Moul, CEO of WAI, said: “During this global health crisis, we all need to do what we can to help. These startups have a great concept to take already existing products in the market to produce large quantities of simple ventilators rapidly. This will save lives and WAI will do whatever it can to provide our full support.”
