June 6, 2020, Calgary, Alta. – It is during challenging times that Albertan’s greatest capabilities and innovative ideas come to life – and the strongest community bonds are shown. Catch Engineering is proud to be part of this innovative project with Exergy and other Albertan companies to make a positive impact for all Albertan’s during the COVID-19 pandemic.
While Exergy was in the process of developing a ventilator for Alberta Health Services, they needed the support of an Electrical and Software Engineer and Jason George of Catch Engineering was a perfect match. In under six short weeks, the project grew rapidly. It established a network of professionals, including engineers and technologists from Alberta and British Columbia, each contributing their own unique expertise critical to the project’s success. Jason George supervised the electrical and software engineering of the device and engaged additional Catch team members for device certification. In the end, the team developed the first Canadian-designed emergency ventilator approved by Health Canada.
“This was our way of making a positive impact in very challenging times. It is never easy seeing someone on a ventilator or watching someone struggle so if we can make any part of these moments easier, it is our duty to do so. Alberta has an abundance of innovative minds and this was the perfect way of utilizing everyone’s special skills for an amazing cause.”
– Jason George, P.Eng., Vice-President, Catch Engineering
