Defibtech – a leading designer and manufacturer of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) – announced today that it has won the Reader’s Choice Award from Industrial Safety and Hygiene News (ISHN) and the Safety 2013 Attendee Choice Award from the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE).

Thousands of ISHN readers and attendees of the 2013 Safety conference in Las Vegas voted to recognize the most innovative safety products across different product categories. “These endorsements come from key opinion leaders in the safety industry,” said Greg Slusser, vice president of sales and marketing. “Safety and health managers understand deployment needs and overall employee safety better than anyone.”

The Lifeline PRO and Lifeline ECG defibrillators feature an interactive screen which shows real-time instructions in full-motion, color video. The Lifeline PRO and ECG AEDs also provide professional responders with patient information which they can use to determine the best care to provide. All Defibtech AEDs show step by step instructions to guide users through a rescue. 

“Time to shock is critical to survival in Sudden Cardiac Arrest,” said Defibtech CEO, Glenn Laub, MD. “In the event of a cardiac arrest defibrillation using an AED within three minutes can increase survival rates from less than 8 percent to more than 70 percent; therefore it is critical for workplaces to have AEDs on site.”

These latest awards add to Defibtech’s growing list of accolades. Defibtech has received more than 25 awards from various organizations recognizing quality and/or industrial design innovation, including the Medical Design Excellence Award from the Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry magazine, the Excellence in Design Award from Appliance Design magazine and the Design of the Decade Award from the Industrial Designers Society of America.
