Modular Design in The Ventilator Crisis: Why It Matters

  1. There will be local shortages even if worldwide demand is met.
  2. When a health care system, including ventilators, is overwhelmed, outcomes will be worse. In other words, more people will die.

Softening = Versatility

Openness = Confidence
