The Covid pandemic poses a challenge for student education. However, it may also provide a unique opportunity for students to tackle some real-world issues. In this work, we demonstrated building a low-cost open-source mechanical ventilator prototype. The process of the design and assembly of the system were demonstrated. In parallel with the experimental tests, we developed a CAD model that helps visualize the motion mechanisms. The ventilator prototype has the potential to help the Covid patients with assisted breath needs.
