EnAccess is supporting Open Source Oxygen Concentrators for Low Resource Settings during the COVID-19 Pandemic. We will publish all our open source material here on this page, as it is ready. The goal is to help quickly get to a working design that can be locally built, repaired and used in settings where access to energy is an issue. "The W.H.O. estimates... that with about one million new coronavirus cases worldwide per week, the world will need 620,000 cubic meters of oxygen per day, or 88,000 large cylinders." (NYT)
