Fragile healthcare systems are widespread in numerous low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), where access to modern diagnostic and treatment equipment is limited. In remote healthcare settings in LMICs, providing adequate care becomes even more challenging, where patient have limited access to emergency care, hence their survival greatly relies on ensuring they receive ventilation during their transport. breathe took on the challenge to develop a ventilator with the aim of improving emergency care in low-resource settings.





“How can we ensure the widespread of those ventilators in low-resource settings?”

Medical devices present an underlining challenge in certain settings - the lack of of resources to manoeuvre those complicated devices. Ventilators are not exempt from that. Lack of relevant training often leads to those machines not being used efficiently. Hence, we needed to find a solution to enable wide training some of the most remote places on the planet, all whilst remaining affordable. The breathe team came to us with the idea of replacing their paper-based simulation and training modules into an easy-to-use and accessible application.

We joined the efforts of Thomas and the rest of the team as we believe that training staff is a stepping stone into saving more lives. With the vision of creating a comprehensive and supportive tool, we embarked on prototyping this concept to bring all the key phases of simulation training together in one place.

Our team took on the responsibility to design the architecture for the backend, where we proposed the use of Sanity for content. This enabled the team to have an easy way to manage their content as often with startups, it is ever-changing., whilst still storing data from their testing section. We eventually built a full application using Next.Js and Tailwind CSS. After numerous successful brainstorming sessions with Thomas and the team, we delivered an application that the breathe team could use to test their concept across many different use cases.
