Faced with the advance of the pandemic: Cordovan creativity

The solution to all problems: Cordovan creativity. We tell you the story of creating a new low-cost respirator prototype.

Stories of people
Ante el avance de la pandemia

The pandemic brings out our  Cordovan creativity and  solidarity  . In Rio Tercero, two technicians were the heroes of this pandemic. They started a  non-profit project,  which attempts to help  people with COVID-19 .

It's about the  development of cyclers . It is a prototype created based on other models. The purpose of this project is to have a second option,  in case of missing respirators.  First of all, for the pandemic:  prevention, forecasting, planning and creativity in Cordoba.  These cyclers are designed for use in extreme emergencies.

Cyclers  will deliver oxygen  to patients who are  victims of COVID-19 , if artificial respirators are not available. That is why this contribution is very important. These technicians used the tools of their small workshop. Along with the knowledge gained throughout their trajectory with machines and manual work, they achieved it. The invention was developed by   Abelardo Oviedo , 41, and Mauro Provenziani, 35.  

 Cicla what? 

These cyclers are “a source that feeds a windshield wiper engine of a vehicle, transmitted by a 110 cylinder sprocket, crown and motorcycle chain, which transmits the movement to a PVC cylinder, which is a spout, with caps and valves,” the authors tell the media.

The workshop, today, is prepared, producing  at least 10 cyclers for the  Provincial Health System .  While they would not impersonate artificial respirators, they are a valid and  necessary alternative in case  of emergency .  As it is expected to be used in the face of a possible  saturation of the health system.  In addition, these cyclers  are inexpensive , which makes them more accessible. Being a non-profit project, its creators have available the recipe for the invention for other workshops to join the proposal. And let the coronavirus not catch us unsuspecting.

We have Cordovan creativity.
