According to Maingear’s morning announcement, the LIV can be manufactured at scale at a quarter of the price of traditional ventilators. Though still pending FDA approval, the company is already in talks with state and local officials to supply LIV units to medical facilities across the country, with plans to scale to ship internationally.

It is a bit weird that Maingear has gone out of its way to create a flashy promotional website for its emergency ventilators, but whatever gets more ventilators in the hands of medical personnel is fine by me.
