HCMC – Vietnamese conglomegrate Vingroup on April 28 announced it has manufactured ventilators to assist with the medical treatment of Covid-19 patients in the country.

The group is set to launch the first batch of its two invasive ventilation machine models—the VFS-410 and VFS-510—on May 15 on the local market.

The lifesaving medical devices were studied and manufactured by local engineers over the course of three weeks, with a localization rate of 70%.

The VSmart VFS-410 is an updated version of the first model, the VFS-310, which Vingroup engineers developed from design ideas presented by MIT University. The production of the VSmart VFS-510 was handled in cooperation with U.S. ventilator developer Medtronic.

The two Vingroup-made ventilator models have been sent to the Health Ministry so hospitals and health experts can assess the products’quality before they are launched on the local market.
