that the technology is based on a special solid rocket fuel. The design of the

certify it as a medical device and enter full-scale production. Next, the
search for an investor will begin. The cost of the device for mass production
will be 5-10 thousand rubles.
device is modified to an industrial design, then it will, of course, be in
demand in different areas... Firstly, in ambulances, in intensive care
vehicles, and secondly, in situations when oxygen-dependent patients need to be
