Emergency Solutions for Respiratory Assistance During COVID-19

AltPAP innovation is here to support the research and application of your emergency respiratory solutions. Amazing initiatives have emerged almost simultaneously as COVID-19 spread globally, but the urgency has made collaboration difficult and advancement redundant. Our non-profit organization is committed to accelerating the efficacy of alternative non-invasive oxygenation devices in Quebec by converging the scientific, industrial and clinical efforts deployed worldwide. 

A Better way of Sharing science

We believe the biggest hurdle slowing research teams is the lack of up-to-date, centralized information about relevant design solutions and the clinical reality they aim to address.

Access and contribute to our real-time open source documentation gathering information from across the world.

Join Our collaborative
Network

If you are using or contributing to the research or application of a non-invasive respirator using a similar design, join our network.

The AltPAP Innovation Network is the central hub for teams around the world. We need to work together to deliver clinically appropriate emergency support worldwide.
