PyDoAir = + +

We use a DOBOT Magician, a raspberry pi and a resuscitation bag to build a #riskyHack mechanical ventilation support system. Our PyDoAir is a cross-platform and open-source-python-scripted mechanical ventilator.

  6. Test Dobot-YOUR-OS-Connection with the official Demo v2.1
    You need some help: Second Development Python Demo
  7. If the Dobot-Arm moves..., your machine is ready to work!
Step 2: Preparing PyDoAir on your OS:
  1. Download all Python-scripts
  2. Start the Python Script
  3. If the GUI-PyDoAir starts with remark PyDoAir is ready the installation is done!
Step 3: Preparing the mechanical components:
  1. Open the arrangement-instructions
  2. install and fasten all components as shown in the arrangement
Step 4: You can Start, but remember...
  1. the machine is a risky prototype ventilator.
  2. there are no long-term-test results under real conditions.
