A Nigerian engineer, Yusuf Bilesanmi, has won the One-to-Watch Award at the Africa Prize for Engineering Innovation for the creation of a ventilator he named “ShiVent”, a low-cost, non-electric device ventilator that is efficient in its use of oxygen.
Yusuf Bilesanmi is a 37-year-old Nigerian who had his first degree at Lagos State University where he studied Law before he switched paths later to science and engineering.
ShiVent is a low-cost, non-electric, and non-invasive ventilator for patients with respiratory difficulties. Explaining how it works, he said, “ShiVent does not require electricity, it is easy to install, non-invasive, and oxygen-efficient, and our belief is that it will help save lives when more expensive or oxygen-intensive technologies can’t get to patients.
