Defibtech Wins Excellence in Design Award

Defibtech Wins Excellence in Design Award

Guilford, CT
April 18, 2011

Defibtech announced today that the Lifeline View™ AED earned the 2011 Excellence in Design Award from Appliance Design magazine. This latest award is one of many accolades Defibtech has earned over the past several years for the quality and design of its AEDs.

The View received a silver award in the Med, Lab and Test Equipment category. This year marks the 24th year of the annual awards program. Defibtech’s Lifeline AED had also been awarded this same award. 

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 guides a rescuer through each step of CPR and defibrillation like no other AED on the market, literally showing and telling a rescuer exactly 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 to place the pads.

“The View development team at Defibtech effectively integrated medical device experience with consumer-friendly design,” said Defibtech CEO Dr. Glenn W. Laub. “As a result, we created an AED that’s affordable and reliable and that makes it even easier to save the life of a sudden cardiac arrest victim.”
