Fitbit develops a ventilator for the patients of the corona. It is easy to use, low-cost, high-quality emergency ventilator designed by the healthcare workers for those who are treating COVID-19 patients. 

The various feature of this ventilator is to observe patients and allows the pressure and the volume of oxygen distribution to be controlled. The Fitbit Flow acts as a temporary stand-in keeping people alive until they can be shifted to a standard machine. The ventilator obtains Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA).

Tony Faranesh, a Fitbit research scientist who helped develop the ventilator said, “We know from some talks that physicians are already trying to work out the ethics in deciding who gets the ventilator and who doesn’t, due to shortage of supply. “The goal here is to support life in the event that one’s not available until one might become available.” It co-ordinated with OHSU (Oregon Health & Science University) for testing the new ventilators.
