Defibtech, manufacturer of the price/performance leading Reviver brand AED (Automated External Defibrillator), today announced that the state of Arkansas has selected the company's AEDs for deployment through their state.

The affordable pricing of the Reviver AED allowed the state of Arkansas to purchase more than 170 defibrillators through a Federal grant provided under the Congressional Rural Access to Emergency Devices Act. These AEDs will be deployed throughout rural communities in fire and emergency services vehicles, community facilities and regional health care centers.

Defibtech co-founder, Dr. Glenn W. Laub, said the selection of his company's AEDs "underscores the superiority of our technology and our ability to deliver the best product at the best price." Defibtech's AEDs feature biphasic defibrillation technology, self-testing capability, class leading user interface and voice prompts, longest operational battery life (up to 7 years), and a professional-grade rugged design. Even with this industry leading feature set, the Defibtech AED is the value leader with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) at $1,495. This price includes everything a customer needs to completely deploy this lifesaving solution, including the AED, defibrillation pads and a 5-year 125-shock battery pack.
