The Rise Emergency Ventilator was developed by Meter in an effort to help meet the global ventilator shortage. Meter is an industrial hardware startup based in Boston, MA and San Francisco, CA.
Meter worked closely with pulmonary critical care clinicians to develop a device grounded in clinical best practices and that address the needs of frontline healthcare workers. The Rise Emergency Ventilator is based on previous research in manual bag resuscitator controls initiated by a member of Meter’s engineering team with a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Meter’s team has expertise in hardware design and resuscitator development. Members of the team have manufactured tens of thousands of hardware products at scale. Meter is uniquely positioned to help solve the ventilator shortage problem.
