Crank Software teamed with Ventec Life Systems to rapidly improve interface control designs to the VOCSN critical care ventilator that it made with General Motors to fill critical COVID-19 needs.

October 13, 2020

A5-in-1 portable device, Ventec Life Systems’ VOCSN ventilator can perform five therapies for patients who have lost lung function – ventilator, portable oxygen concentrator, cough stimulator, suction, and nebulizer. As a portable critical care ventilator, VOCSN is ideal for COVID-19 treatment, and as a result the company received a large federal contract in April 2020 to make 30,000 units with manufacturing partner General Motors.

Ten million parts went into the 30,000 ventilators that General Motors [GM -0.7%], in partnership with Ventec Life Systems, delivered to the national stockpile earlier this year. Thousands of employees at 90 companies helped make the parts.

From the moment in mid-March that GM and Ventec first discussed their alliance to ramp up production of Ventec's VOCSN critical care ventilators, the project moved quickly, as the severity of the coronavirus – and of equipment shortages – became more apparent with each passing day. Right away, the joint venture hit a hurdle: factories in India that manufactured crucial VOCSN parts were shut down because of the pandemic.
