A Team of engineering students led by a IIT Bombay student have developed a low-cost mechanical ventilator named Ruhdaar using locally available materials.


  • The team will now go for medical testing of the prototype. Once it is approved, it will be taken for mass production. The effort is to make it amenable for production by small scale industry.

  • Ventilators are an important component of the medical infrastructure required for treating coronavirus-infected patients, providing critical breathing support to those falling critically ill.
