Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA)-ventricular fibrillation (VF)- kills 350000 people in the US alone, each year, about 3 million worldwide, at the prime-time of their life, mostly witnessed and at home /office.
Defibrillation procedure must be performed as soon as possible: survival decreases by 10% for every minute of delay-therefore ambulance help at home-too late! At present, only very few of SCA victims at home survive and many- in coma, in nursing homes.
TED is a home consumer solution that is much more affordable and reliable.
The novelty in our defibrillator device is based on a computerized modification of the alternating current, from the mains , existing in every home, to the FDA-approved biphasic defibrillatory wave .
