When natural disasters strike, power outages put vulnerable patients at risk, especially those who depend on supplemental oxygen tanks to breathe. For their senior capstone project, a team of engineering students designed an oxygen concentrator prototype that relies solely on solar energy to generate medical-grade oxygen onsite.
Thanks to support from the Capstone Design Fund, Team ElectroSolar was able to refine their research and rigorously test a working prototype. They plan to bring this technology to market to make an impact in areas with scarce sources of electricity.
Capstone design projects provide a valuable opportunity for students to apply their education to address real-world engineering challenges. Your gift supports engineering students to help move their ideas from design into reality and develop solutions with the potential to save lives.
