The researchers from University of Applied Sciences and Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research have developed a device, named Rescue Aid. It assists in administering the chest compressions at right frequency and strength.
Individuals can be saved from cardiac arrest, if chest compressions are effectively performed. Compressions are not correctly delivered and are weak in many cases.
Rescue Aid contains LED indicators on top and is available in form of a flexible and soft pad. It needs to be kept over the patient's chest. The intensity of compression can be identified using silicone deformation sensors. Resuscitation process can be simplified through Rescue Aid.
