DESIGN – VALIDATE – MANUFACTURE – DISTRIBUTE – FIGHT THE VIRUS
The watchword is given: listening and efficiency are at the forefront.
In recent weeks, the exponential increase in simultaneous worldwide demand for the same medical devices, combined with the shutdown or reduction in production of manufacturing plants in areas affected by the pandemic, has put supply chains under unprecedented strain. This exposes French healthcare institutions to a shortage of devices that are essential to the healthcare activity in the fight against Covid-19. In addition, this health crisis has brought to light new needs linked to the daily in-depth knowledge of the virus and its spread.
Many French manufacturers are using their production capacity for the manufacture of complex equipment essential for patient care (ventilators, intensive care beds, syringe pump motors, etc.) in order to fight against Covid-19. Furthermore, Hospitals need to regain reactivity and agility in the supply of simple but critical devices.
In just 10 days, the Covid3D platform was implemented at Cochin Hospital to meet the needs of the AP-HP hospitals in the shortest possible time.
A nationwide project to fight the coronavirus epidemic.
