One is powered by the engine and battery parts of a Toyota Corolla, a standard car in Herat. The ventilator automatically operates an Ambu, a self-inflating plastic sac employed by medical professionals to assist patients breathe.

The team is developing the opposite model supported a design by the Massachusetts Institute for Technology, with input from Harvard University experts, and doctors are testing it.

If the planet Health Organization and therefore the Afghan Health Ministry approves one among the team’s prototypes, they're going to be ready to mass produce it for US $300, compared to the standard monetary value of $30,000.
