CellAED® Press Release - CorMed-DX

CellAED® Press Release

World-first personal defibrillator, CellAED® available in the UK with CorMed-DX Ltd.
Unique, innovative technology to save lives from Sudden Cardiac Arrest.

CorMed-DX Ltd have partnered with Rapid Response Revival® as an authorised re-seller of CellAED®, the world-first personal defibrillator, created to make AEDs (automated external defibrillators) affordable and easy to use for people with no medical training. Weighing just 300grams and the size of a bar of chocolate, CellAED® can be carried with you or stored very easily.

Sudden cardiac arrest is the world’s biggest cause of premature death, killing between seven and nine million people every year[i].  This is similar to the lives lost from all cancers combined.[ii] 

More than 80 per cent of sudden cardiac arrests occur in the home.[iii]  Before now, AEDs have been too expensive to be a realistic option for the households of people at risk of sudden cardiac arrest, and too complicated to use.

Rapid Response Revival® has solved these problems.  By designing a miniaturised AED that is easy to use, the Sydney-based start-up was also able to reduce the cost to consumers of owning this life-saving technology.

“CorMed-DX are delighted to be working with Rapid Response Revival®, out of hospital sudden cardiac arrests (OHSCA) are a time-sensitive, life threatening emergency that occur too often in the UK. Until now, public access AEDs have been too complicated for a bystander to use confidently, and haven’t been accessible enough. CellAED®is a game changer and resets the clock when “time is everything”; we are 100% certain that this product will save lives, the device is so simple to use, anyone can do it, even a child. We can’t wait to show off this life saving device in the UK.”Craig Hall, MD and Founder of CorMed-DX.

The unique CellAED® Snap Peel Stick™ design allows the AED to be applied in seconds, buying time to save lives from sudden cardiac arrest.

These achievements will improve availability of defibrillators where it’s needed most – in our homes, businesses and communities.

Rapid defibrillation is the only effective treatment for sudden cardiac arrest.[iv]  An AED applied within minutes of a sudden cardiac arrest buys the patient time until emergency services arrive.[v] 

Someone experiencing a sudden cardiac arrest requires rapid defibrillation.  For every minute without defibrillation and CPR, the chances of being revived following a cardiac arrest drops 10 per cent.[vi]

Sudden cardiac arrest has a survival rate of less than one percent.[vii]  This is because it kills so quickly, and because most witnesses to a sudden cardiac arrest don’t have the skills or access to an AED to help save a life,” said Rapid Response Revival® Founder and CEO, Donovan Casey. 

“We created our easy-to-use CellAED® to make our AEDs more affordable, smaller, portable and more accessible so more people have access to this life-saving technology in those critical first few minutes following an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. 

“It is gratifying to know that smart, innovative Australian technology will soon be saving lives around the world.”

CellAED® is ground-breaking medical technology that emergency first responders, electro-cardiologists, first aid trainers and others dedicated to saving lives from sudden cardiac arrest have been waiting for.
