Surat based STPL develops indigenous ventilator to help India fight COVID-19

Quickly responding to the need of hour, Surat-based STPL, the global giant in the diamond industry and medical equipment related technologies, has developed indigenous ventilator, named IndoVent.

A medical ventilator is a life-saving innovation for mankind. It provides artificial breathing when the lungs of a patient fail to do it naturally. According to the ICMR reports, around 5 % COVID-19 infected patients will require extensive care and mechanical ventilation, but India faces acute shortage of reliable ventilators, to effectively deal with current situation.


Sensing the dire need of ventilators, STPL pulled together its team of highly skilled technocrats and developed its own ventilator in a record breaking short time. The ventilator has passed all the medical trials conducted at the Civil Hospital, Surat by a team of medical experts. The machine is now ready for mass production. STPL is gearing up to manufacture 250 units per day, to boost the hospitals' efforts to fight COVID-19. The company is hopeful to keep the price per unit under a thousand USD.

IndoVent is robust, highly reliable, and easy to us. It is made with the same parts and technologies used in developing highly precise, automation oriented solutions for the diamond processing industry. The prototype ventilator has been validated in all the medical norms. The design is rugged and robust for rough use in emergency situations. Ease of use is the key feature of the design, can be easily operated by para-medics. STPL aims to keep the price of this crucial equipment under a thousand USD per unit.
