“The prototype of the ventilator is being made at the center”, informs Mahabir Pun.
In fact, if this research is successful, the value of the ventilator will be less than one lakh Rupees.
Earlier, NIC had made PPE suits and gloves for doctors in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak in Nepal.
The team used Rubberized Taffeta Fabric for making PPE kits which are fully airproof and waterproof.
Likewise, Paaila Technology was also working on the development of low-cost ventilators to overcome the shortage of ventilators in Nepal.
