February 8, 2018  •  Guilford, CT

Defibtech is pleased to announce that we have received FDA Premarket Approval (PMA) for all Lifeline™ and ReviveR™ AED models offered for sale in the United States. A PMA is the most rigorous of FDA regulations for marketing a medical device in the United States. The approval means that Defibtech presented to the FDA sufficient scientific evidence that our AED devices are safe and effective for their intended uses.

Defibtech’s Lifeline and ReviveR brand of AEDs continue to meet or exceed Defibtech’s existing product performance specifications and our dedication to quality, reflected in this approval, extends to all areas of the company as we continue to strive to be the company that customers turn to for high quality and innovative offerings.
