What do you do when the NSW government calls you up and asks if you can develop and produce 600 ventilators in 28 days. When you have someone like Ian Webster on your team you say yes. This interview, which is part of a new Biomedical Innovation and MedTech unit of work for teachers to use in STEM classrooms, takes you behind the scenes of what happened when Ampcontrol, an integrated electrical, electronic and control solutions company in the Hunter, CEO and Managing Director, Rob Henderson received ‘The Call’… can you design, develop and produce 600, low-cost, lifesaving back-up ventilator solutions in 28 days? In this highly engaging interview, Ian Webster, the engineer at the centre of Ampcontrol’s response, steps out the Emergency Engineering approach the Ampcontrol team took when faced with this challenge and opportunity.
