It takes many hands to meet the challenge of resurrecting graveyards of broken concentrators across the country. To address this need we have established OpenO2 Corps. This is an opportunity for early career professionals to get much needed experience while at the same time assisting the country in addressing the crisis at hand. OpenO2 Corps interns are part of our solution to address the oxygen crisis emphasizing the use of local resources as much as possible.
