The project applied engineering skills to use adaptors on the second stage of diving tanks to connect them to medical grade oxygen masks –  as well as create rebreathers for hospitals, organise the logistics from identifying diving centres and hospitals in need. The project is co-led by Global Shapers Hubs networks and several engineers from the University of Cambridge and the Indian Institute of Technology Ropar (Punjab).
