About SAVE-P

The SAVE-P team comprises a group of committed South Africans from across the country, including engineers, designers, technologists and medical professionals, who have redesigned a CPAP device that can be manufactured using existing local technology for treating patients affected by Covid-19. The CPAP 100 device is an affordable, reliable solution that requires little maintenance and a minimum of training for non-ICU qualified nurses. SAVE-P, with assistance from the Medical Device Manufacturers Association of South Africa (MDMASA) and the National Association of Automotive Component and Allied Manufacturers (NACAM), have received expedited licencing from the regulatory authority (SAHPRA) to commence immediate manufacture of the CPAP 100.
