Our mission

Autonomous life support in intensive care

Autonomous mechanical ventilation

Our autonomous mechanical ventilation platform will contribute to saving millions of lives by providing adequate respiratory support to each of the more than 20 million patients admitted to intensive care each year.


L‘assistance respiratoire, un art complexe

In a global context where the demand for critical care is sharply increasing, healthcare facilities struggle to gather a sufficient quantity of highly qualified human resources necessary for the implementation of increasingly complex mechanical ventilation techniques.

Ventilation is too often inadequate

82% of patients in need of respiratory assistance do not receive ventilation that complies with international standards.

Medical staff under pressure

The intensive care staff is under significant pressure. Intensive care units struggle to recruit the specialized personnel required for their proper functioning.

Demanding skills

The training of a specialized caregiver and the acquisition of field experience require a significant amount of time, making the retention of expertise a crucial challenge. 

Ou solution

An autonomous mechanical ventilation platform

Hilum supports healthcare professionals throughout the patient's hospital stay. Its hardware platform deploys software functions, using artificial intelligence to monitor and autonomously implement personalized therapeutic strategies. ..

At Hilum Healthcare, we believe that true progress lies in making high-quality care accessible to everyone.  The emergence of artificial intelligence capable of understanding the complexity of human respiration makes this vision possible.


High-end ventilation for everyone

Our platform has been designed to deliver ventilatory performance equivalent to the best respirators currently on the market.

Autonomy ensures a meticulous and repeatable implementation of a therapeutic strategy in line with international recommendations and state-of-the-art practices, regardless of the operator's expertise level.  

It also ensures continuous monitoring, constantly at the patient's bedside, speeding up response time to changes in the patient's condition. 

Restoring time for healthcare professionals.

Autonomy in mechanical ventilation allows healthcare professionals to focus on higher value-added tasks and on personalized patient care, indirectly improving the quality of healthcare. 

This reduces their mental load and increases their efficiency.


Reduce operating costs.

The deployment of autonomous ventilation pays off in less than six months compared to the use of a traditional ventilator.

By consistently providing optimal ventilation, it generates significant gains on all fronts: improvement in healthcare professionals' efficiency, reduction in length of stay, decrease in the risk of nosocomial infection, reduction in the risk of complications, and decrease in medical gas consumption.  etc.

The origins

Hilum Healthcare, an Airbus spin-off

Aerospace technologies applied to medicine.

In March 2020, Alexandre Jaeg and Damien Lozach – then engineers at Airbus and entrepreneurs – assembled a team of 40 engineers to cope with the shortage of ventilators in the context of the pandemic.
They deliver a prototype in less than 3 months with the support of the Toulouse University Hospital.
The project is incubated by Airbus Scale before becoming a spin-off, bringing together leading industrial partners.

Hilum Healthcare has been granted a substantial financial support in the frame of the France 2030 program for the "relocalization of strategic industries - health sector."
