With the extreme prevalence of the Coronavirus, reliance on medical machinery has been greater than ever. Read below to learn more about how CRI put their medical manufacturing expertise to use during the pandemic.
The widespread nature of the COVID-19 pandemic has taken a significant toll on hospitals and essential workers
Although C.R. International Inc. (CRI)'s relationship with US military, government, and intelligence agencies is well-known, CRI also has served a variety of other customers, including those in the medical industry.
Over the years, CRI has manufactured rigid flex circuit boards for many medical applications. CRI has worked closely with Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab and HD Robotics to prepare such boards for prosthetic devices. CRI has also collaborated with GE Healthcare to create other medical devices.

So, it is no surprise that CRI put their medical manufacturing skills to use during the Coronavirus pandemic. Many strains of COVID-19 impair respiratory function significantly, increasing strain on ventilators supplies at many hospitals. As a result, CRI lent their medical manufacturing experience to local University of Maryland Medical Centers, repairing ventilator cables, thus ensuring the machines would be available when needed.
