Defibtech Lifeline AUTO Defibrillator Wins a Good Design Award

Guilford, CT

Defibtech announced today that the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design awarded a Good Design Award to Defibtech for the Lifeline AUTO Fully Automated Defibrillator.

Each year, the Chicago Athenaeum presents the Good Design Awards for the most innovative and cutting-edge industrial, product, and graphic designs produced around the world. Founded in Chicago in 1950 the Good Design Award is the oldest and the most prestigious awards program organized worldwide.

The Lifeline AUTO is a fully-automated defibrillator designed to analyze heart rhythms and automatically deliver a shock – without intervention – if needed. The user simply needs to turn on the AUTO and apply the pads to the patient. If the unit recognizes that a shock is needed, it will automatically shock the patient.

“The Lifeline AUTO is designed for simple, one-button operation,” stated David Fritzsche, VP of AED Sales, “It follows the award-winning design of the Lifeline AED, and includes all mission critical features necessary to provide the most advanced treatment for Sudden Cardiac Arrest, but takes ease of use one step further. Turn the unit on, apply the pads and you can rely on the Lifeline AUTO to do the rest.”

Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) revive victims of sudden cardiac arrest caused by ventricular fibrillation. Studies show that if victims are defibrillated within three minutes, more than 74 percent survive. If defibrillation is delayed for more than 10 minutes, only 6 percent live, making immediate access to easy to use AEDs vital.
