WAI’s Wiper Motors provide a widely available and reliable product for the rapid production of ventilators that can be distributed with a very high speed of deployment to hospitals.

“During this global health crisis, we all need to do what we can to help,” says Ryan Moul, CEO of WAI. “These startups have a great concept to take already existing products in the market to produce large quantities of simple ventilators rapidly. This will save lives and WAI will do whatever it can to provide our full support.”
