At the end of this year, Adobe will stop providing support for its Flash Player. This change naturally affects the simulation software for our ventilators.
As at 31.12.2020, the Flash Player technology will no longer be distributed or updated by Adobe, nor will it be supported by any of the major browsers. After this time, the online versions of our Flash-based simulations for HAMILTON-C1/C2/T1/MR1 and HAMILTON-G5 ventilators will no longer work in your browser. However, you will still be able to use the download versions available from MyHamilton. Please note that the more advanced HAMILTON-C6 simulation is not affected by this change.
At present, we are working on a generic training app with multiple simulations based on the HAMILTON-C6 model that will also be available on smartphones. We are in the process of implementing the HAMILTON-C6 and HAMILTON-C1/T1/MR1 and should have a first release for iOS, Android, Windows, and Mac by the end of November. Following that, we will implement the remaining ventilators (HAMILTON-C3 and HAMILTON-G5) as soon as possible.
We hope to offer these simulations through a browser again (with no download required) at a later stage in 2021.
