PMC Smart Solutions contributed its medical device manufacturing and regulatory expertise to the development and production of the Venti-Now portable ventilator, reports Plastics Today.
COVID-19 has provided opportunities for custom molders to apply their expertise to the development and manufacture of much-needed medical equipment. PMC Smart Solutions LLC, a family-owned company in Cincinnati specializing in engineering, design/development, plastic injection molding, contract assembly, and sterilization, is using its extensive experience to help bring a new ventilator to market as quickly and inexpensively as possible, without compromising on quality.

Venti-Now is also easy to operate and utilizes standard, disposable BVM bags, making it ideal for use in emergency situations in both hospital and field locations.
