TeamOSV was started in March 2020 in response to the COVID-19 global pandemic. Our vision was to build a team to design and develop an Emergency Field Ventilator (EFV), initially under the name Open Source Ventilator Ireland. In response to increasing needs and shortages, TeamOSV expanded and adapted. TeamOSV now stands at over 3,000 volunteers working on not only the EFV but also over 40 more open-source solutions related to COVID-19.
These projects span from low-tech DIY and 3D printed face shields to high-tech thermal cameras. They also include societal movements including the processing, collection and delivery of crucial PPE for front-line staff. TeamOSV is now a multidisciplinary team of engineers, designers, makers, and medical practitioners working on developing novel low-resource interventions through online collaboration.
Our goal is to connect ambitious volunteers, teams and organisation in the fight to produce open-source solutions to Covid-19 related issues.
