Episode 12 – Unlocking Respirators to Fight COVID-19 – Trammell Hudson
Trammell Hudson likes to take things apart. Including, as it turns out, firmware on CPAP and BiPAP devices that can unlock ventilator capabilities on those devices, through the Airbreak project.
Other notes from the show:
- One of Trammell’s earlier projects, Magic Lantern, unlocked capabilities on Canon DSLR cameras.
- Trammell also shared a story with us about how manufacturer’s rules make ventilator repair difficult, and the broader implications of Right to Repair for medical devices.
