vesque / Wearable Defibrillator


vesque is a Wearable Cardioverter/Defibrillator (WCD) for heart patients at risk. It is an interim solution during the period of diagnosis. vesque monitors the ECG of the patient and emits an audible warning signal, if a life-threatening heart rhythm disturbance (fibrillation) is detected. If the release sequence doesn’t get interrupted, a shock restores the normal heart rhythm. Further an emergency call is transmitted. The vesque concept is designed to be handy and easy to use. It integrates itself into the daily life of the patient and the process of diagnosis. An important aim is to accomplish more acceptance for patients in the society.
