Dayco producing parts to convert snorkeling mask into ventilator for coronavirus patients

Dayco is producing parts that can convert a snorkeling mask into makeshift ventilators for coronavirus patients.

The adaption of the mask, normally supplied via sports outlet Decathlon, is the brain-child of the inventor supported by a project team including Italian consultancy Isinnova, eight individuals and several partners, which transforms the mask originally intended for leisure activities, into a vital resource that is already being used in hospitals in northern Italy and by the Italian Red Cross.
