Traditional respiratory system is bulky, complicated, and doesn’t give a lot of freedom to its user. Ventum is a concept respiratory system that works just like traditional one but it frees user from multiple hoses and cables that are usually needed to power and monitor the operation. With children as target market, this medical equipment aims to give children that suffer from breathing difficulties the freedom to live, laugh, and play while carrying a compact respirator in the form of a backpack. It seems that the bulky equipment is big issue here, since we’ve featured a design with the same idea, you can checkout Roam Lightweight Respiratory Unit.
Designer : Simon Fredriksson
Ventum features far smaller equipment, just like a lightweight backpack suitable for children aged 0 to 6 years. At this age, when children must carry heavy, restrictive equipment, they have to sacrifice their ability to play and interact with the world. This medical equipment concept allows parents to monitor the system remotely through a special app while the backpack itself works on a rechargeable battery. Just incase the respirator has to be adjusted or needs urgent attention due to low pressure, there’s a critical alarm that alert everyone near to ensure the safety of the children. This is a great project to help children with breathing problem to shift their focus on growing up and enjoying the world instead of to the medical system.
