OSVX

Solve current covid19 problems with our community!

OSVX (Open Source Volunteers Extended) is the non-ventilator project arm of TeamOSV which was created to design and discuss emergency open-source solutions to help tackle the current COVID-19 pandemic and break the chain of infection.

Created by Gillian Berry and Dr. Roisin Lyons, OSVX is intended to act as an information repository and portal for the open-source community discussion and design of covid19 solutions. We provide access to crowd-sourced insights from our community, relevant research and expert webinars, as well as mentorship and support from experts in the field.

Through the engagement of the engineers, innovators and engaged citizens, we have witnessed many successes to date - in PPE design and delivery, face shield printing and more.

Join our community - Work on a Project!

How did OSVX start?

OSVX was created in response to a growing need for solutions during the Covid crisis, and a large volunteer community of problem-solvers. OSVX was formed by Gillian Berry and Roisin Lyons to design open-source solutions to challenges faced by front-line staff during the covid19 pandemic, as part of the wider TeamOSV initiative (teamosv.com). In discussion with a number of healthcare services, a diverse range of project briefs were created, from bubble masks to educational apps. Now, over 1,000 members have joined and contributed to the progression of these crucial concepts. The OSVX core team, project managers and administrators act on an entirely voluntary basis.

The ethos of OSVX centres on transparency, collaboration and respect, where ideas are valued and designs are discussed openly. We are extremely conscious that open source solutions are urgently needed across the world. We strive to develop both high and low-end solutions for each challenge so that they can be adopted in contexts where resources are scarce. We urge our community to move with care, but move quickly, for those that need support. Embodying principles of open-source, we support the designs of innovators external to our community if they have merit and save lives. OSVX collates information based on crowd-sourced insights, attempting to learn from the iterations and evolving knowledge of our global membership. We encourage our members to safely test our recommended designs, validate them in their contexts, and use them to fulfil their crucial emergency requirements.

OSVX is part of a wider initiative - Open Source Volunteers (TeamOSV). The initiative was formed by Colin Keogh, Conall Laverty & David Pollard, with the goal of building a focused team in Ireland to begin development of a Field Emergency Ventilator (FEV). The group made some urgent appeals for support and were overwhelmed by the number of engineers, innovators and engaged individuals who registered to help. It was clear that this group had the potential to solve many other covid19 challenges that were emerging.

@CRUXappHardware CRUX Open Source ventilator. I should say, Bangladesh First Open Source Turbine Based Ventilator. Honestly, it's not 100% ready yet, but we have done the major part and made it open source which clearly first time in our country. SIMV mode has been integrated.
