Life-Shock / life save device


Lifeguards are not machines that revitalize the heart. They do not undrown people, even when CPR is administered. But ‘Life-Shock, an AED, which doesn’t need an electric cardioverter, can be utilized easily only with your smart phone.
‘Life-Shock’ is made of rubber, and therefore flexible, light, pock-sized, portable, and thus perfect for the physical environment that lifeguards are surrounded by during the workday.
If you’re smart phone user, you can easily use an AED for any cardiac emergency.
