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 .

  • TED-­‐Time  and  life-­‐saving  External   Defibrillator:  a  Home  AED   Inventors  and  patent  holders:       Prof.  A.  Teddy    Weiss  &  team  at  Hadassah   Hospital,  Jerusalem,  Israel      atweiss@hadassah.org.il  
  • Sudden  Cardiac  Arrest   The  Need   •  Sudden  Cardiac  Arrest  (SCA)-­‐ventricular  fibrilla<on  (VF)-­‐    kills  350000  people  in   the  US  alone,  each  year,  about  3  million  worldwide,  at  the  prime-­‐<me  of  their   life,  mostly  witnessed  and  at  home  /office.   •  Defibrilla<on  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  vic<ms  at  home  survive  and  many-­‐  in   coma,  in  nursing  homes.   •  TED  is  a  home  consumer  solu<on  that  is  much  more  affordable  and  reliable.              The  novelty  in  our  defibrillator  device  is  based  on  a  computerized  modifica<on  of     the  alterna<ng  current,  from  the  mains  ,  exis<ng  in  every  home,  to  the  FDA-­‐ approved  biphasic    defibrillatory    wave.    
  • Sudden  Cardiac  Arrest   The  Evolu<on   •  External  Defibrillators-­‐  used  in  hospitals,  since  1960s   •  AICD-­‐for  the  very  high  risk  pts-­‐since  1980s   •  AED  used  by  trained  emergency  personnel  have  become  an   essen<al  link  in  the  “Chain  of  Survival”(CPR),  since  1980s         •  The  logical  extension  of  the  AED  concept  is  the  Public  Access   Defibrillator  (in  airplanes,  airport,  casino)-­‐infrequent  use,  by   laymen  and  since  safe-­‐  FDA  approved  its  use  at  home-­‐2000   •  A  further  logical  extension  of  the  Public  Access  Defibrillator  is  our   TED  -­‐  Personal  Defibrillator  to  be  used  at  home/office
