They are also looking to provide healthcare professionals with the medical devices and tools to help their patients and to protect themselves.
Project Open Air looks to support projects such as Vent2Life, Open Source Ventilator, Front Line Medic Protection, and Masks For All.

Open Source Ventilator is a project that builds ventilator models with low-cost components. Front Line Medic Protection looks to gather and provide protective equipment gear including caps, goggles, visors, respirators, aprons, gloves, and boot covers. Masks For All is a project meant to reduce transmission between people.
