AED with built-in connectivity gets FDA approval
“The opportunity to dramatically transform cardiac arrest response and improve outcomes is now possible,” said Rory Beyer, Avive co-founder and president
SAN FRANCISCO — Avive Solutions received FDA pre-market approval this week for its Avive AED.
- Cellular, WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth connectivity designed to connect with 911 call centers and transfer incident data to dispatchers and EMS providers
- A button that toggles between adult mode and child mode
- A button that gives instructions in Spanish
- A rechargeable battery designed to last longer than 8 months
“The opportunity to dramatically transform cardiac arrest response and improve outcomes is now possible in ways that weren’t imagined even a few years ago,” said Rory Beyer, Avive co-founder and president. “The power of our platform is its ability to connect the different elements of a cardiac arrest response. More connections mean more valuable data can get to the right people at the right time. This approach mirrors the paradigm shifts and benefits we have seen connected devices bring to other industries such as smartphones, home security, personal fitness, automobiles and more.”
The AED is available for preorder. The company said that fire departments, police departments, businesses, municipalities and others are on the waitlist, which is accepting further entries. New orders are expected to be shipped over the summer.
