Thales subsidiary in Brazil helps the fight against Covid-19 by producing boards for hospital ventilators

In a little less than two weeks, the company had already produced 250 boards and has an additional 500 boards in the pipeline. The production is the result of a partnership between Omnisys and CMOS Drake, a manufacturer of medical equipment, and is supporting healthcare provided in Intensive Care Units of Brazilian hospitals to help minimize the impacts caused by the pandemic.

“The speedy development of the boards results from the exceptional mobilization of the Ominsys team to adapt our production line focused in the defence and security, inflight entertainment and avionics sectors to other segments."
Luciano Macaferri Rodrigues, General Director, Thales Brazil

Luiz Henriques, CEO at Omnisys, points out that all solutions developed by the company are subject to strict criteria aimed at excellence in deliveries. In this particular case, given the challenging circumstances the country is experiencing, there is an even greater motivation to contribute to such an important cause.

A subsidiary of Thales in Brazil, Omnisys is working on other fronts to fight the Covid-19 pandemic. Since 2020, the company has been repairing dozens of hospital bed devices of the Antonio Pedro Hospital of the Fluminense Federal University (UFF) in Rio de Janeiro. Omnisys also develops a national mechanical respirator in partnership with other companies to help meet the great demand of healthcare facilities.
