Defibtech AED Showcased in the Design Museum’s Designs of the Year 2012 Exhibit

London, U.K.
February 8, 2012

The Defibtech Lifeline VIEW Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is on display at the Design Museum in London, England. The Design Museum chose the Defibtech AED for inclusion in its Designs of the Year 2012 exhibition which runs through July 15, 2012.

The Designs of the Year exhibit showcases the best in global designs. Industry experts nominated innovative and engaging designs across seven categories: Architecture, Digital, Fashion, Furniture, Graphics, Product and Transport. Defibtech’s Lifeline VIEW AED was chosen for the Product category.  

“We are honored to be part of the Design Museum’s exhibit,” said Defibtech President Gintaras Vaisnys. “We take great pride in the overall design of all of our AEDS, from the utility of the devices to the esthetics. Every design aspect works towards making our AEDs unintimidating and extremely easy to use.”

The Lifeline VIEW AED is the only external defibrillator that integrates video, voice, pictures and text to help save the life of a sudden cardiac arrest victim in real time. During an emergency, the VIEW AED guides a rescuer through each step of CPR and defibrillation like no other AED on the market, literally showing and telling rescuer what to do to save a life. For example, when the VIEW’s voice prompt says, “Place pads on patient’s chest,” the video shows the rescuer exactly where and how to place the pads.

AEDs revive victims of sudden cardiac arrest caused by ventricular fibrillation. Studies show that if victims are defibrillated within a minute or two after arrest, more than 70 percent survive. If defibrillation is delayed for more than 10 minutes, less than 5 percent live, making immediate access to AEDs vital.
