To help defeat the Covid-19, in less than 24 hours CRP Technology has manufactured in-house several functional prototypes of emergency valves for reanimation device and link-components for emergency respiratory masks for assisted ventilation.

“For the manufacture of both type of components, the CRP Technology’s Rapid Prototyping Department has used the 3D printing technology called HSS (High Speed Sintering) and the Windform P1 isotropic material,” the Italian company said today.

"Following the intensification of the emergency due to the lack of fundamental devices for the care of patients affected by Covid-19 - we want to give a concrete sign of our support: we 3D printed emergency valves for ventilations and several Charlotte valves,” commented Engineer Franco Cevolini, Vice President and Technical Director CRP Technology.

“Charlotte valves are link-components for emergency ventilator mask, realized by Isinnova on Dr. Renato Favero idea and project, adjusting a snorkelling mask already available on the market (Easybreath mask by Decathlon).”

“Isinnova has decided,” Cevolini adds, “ to urgently patent the link valve (Charlotte Valve), to prevent any speculation on the price of the component. They clarify that the patent will remain free to use, because it is in their intention that all hospitals in need could use it if necessary.”

It should be noted that neither the mask nor the link is certified and their use is subject to a situation of mandatory need. Usage by the patient is subjected to the acceptance of use of an uncertified biomedical device, by providing a signed declaration, CRP technology said.
