A little bit of history

The current president of the company is Dr. Ernesto P. Mañá, surgeon of thorax. And vice president is Luis R. Mañá, an engineering student who in 1966 encouraged himself to accompany his brother in an investigation. These men, enterprising, intelligent and visionaries, managed to develop mechanical respirators. The main objective was to assist lung ventilation in patients with different types of respiratory failure. And they did, and they even positioned themselves as a leading company in this field.

The Mañá brothers became the saviors of many people. Since they supply the vast majority of hospitals in the country and, in addition, export their products. With the first prototype experiments in animals, in order to improve the project of developing a respirator suitable for humans, the first model was reached. In 1966, the first test of a prototype in a human patient was successfully conducted. It was in the Surgery Service of the Chair of Thisiology and Thoracic Diseases of the National University of Córdoba. And since then, the company managed to save millions of lives and consolidate itself in the market with its new, increasingly technological and efficient models . Today, with a pandemic like COVID-19, having a company of such caliber saves us all.
