“The UCL-Ventura breathing aid is one of more than six hundred devices being sent to India.“
The team is ready to send more to India to help battle against COVID-19.
UCL Institute of Healthcare Engineering, Professor Rebecca Shipley, stated: “I’m immensely proud of the UCL Ventura team and indebted to our logistics partner - G-TEM - who after receiving the call on Saturday morning, arranged for the shipment to be sent with the government’s emergency supplies to India’s worst-hit areas. In the last year, we have built partnerships in countries across the world and we remain committed to doing everything we can to support the global COVID-19 response.”
