Smartphone Automatic External Defibrillator
Altrix Medical is creating a pocket-size Automated External Defibrillator (AED) that integrates with a smartphone. This innovative medical device goes anywhere a person’s phone goes and allows for the immediate on-site diagnosis and treatment of someone suffering from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).
The technology will fit over a smartphone, the same way traditional smartphone cases do today. However, these cases will also be fully functioning AEDs capable of emergency telecommunications and full motion video when connected to your smartphone.
SCAs are caused when the heart’s natural electrical system that is responsible for pumping blood (i.e., beating the heart) malfunctions. Someone experiencing an SCA needs to be treated with an AED immediately. These devices shock the heart with electricity to restore its normal rhythm. If an AED is available and used quickly and properly, it can save a person’s life.
ALL COMPONENTS FIT WITHIN THE CASE

About Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA)
WHAT IS SCA?
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) occurs when the heart’s electrical system malfunctions. It can cause death if it is not treated in minutes. In the United States alone, over 325,000 people will experience an SCA this year; 9 out of 10 of them will die without immediate intervention.
STATISTICS ON SCA
The number of people killed by SCAs each year is equivalent to the number of people who will die from: Alzheimers disease, assault with firearms, breast cancer, cervical cancer, colorectal cancer, diabetes, HIV, house fires, motor vehicle accidents, prostate cancer and suicides – combined.
