Here’s a great concept CPR resuscitation pad that might work if the pad itself was adjustable for people with different sizes. But yes, having one of these handy might be real useful for any heart attacks.
Proper application of CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) can increase the chances of a victim surviving by up to 50%. Designer Ryan Helps (yup, really his name) has addressed this issue with his “CPR-PAD” design. When applied to the chest, this monitor/aid shows the optimal way to push the chest correctly, clicks when proper pressure is achieved and flashes the power light for proper rhythm.
UPDATE by Ryan Helps the designer:
It’s a product that would be used in a similar way to a fire extinguisher, mounted on posts or walls in shopping centres (wallmart’s), in public places, and easily accessible during an emergency.
im also exhibiting at New Designers London 9-13th July.
