Founded in 1999 by renowned cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. Glenn W Laub and his friend engineer Gintaras Vaisnys, Defibtech has had one mission: to build a company devoted to creating the world’s best Automated External Defibrillators (AED). In 2003, the Defibtech AED was introduced to the market offering high-quality reliability and unparalleled features at half of the price of competitor models. To this day, Defibtech AEDs are manufactured in the United States and continue to garner awards and distinctions. Since its introduction, the family of Defibtech AEDs has protected athletes and spectators at the Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy, and has continued to draw accolades as an industry leader in design and deployment.
Defibtech’s powerful and compact design is easy to use for everyone from the highly trained first responder to the untrained bystander. With more than 300,000 units in more than 50 countries worldwide, Defibtech AEDs can be found everywhere from Europe to the Middle East. Offering dual language options, these devices can be ordered in more than 30 languages where prompts are given in both a primary language and an easy-to-select secondary language.
The Defibtech Lifeline AED was the model that started it all. Compact, award-winning, and easy to use, this device continues to lead the market in functionality and durability. Available with optional EKG monitoring, the Lifeline features a five-year battery or seven-year battery that can successfully offer continuous use far beyond the industry standard. With only two buttons and clear voice prompts, the Lifeline is one of the simplest units available offering unintimidating but lifesaving protection to its users. The Defibtech Lifeline View offers the first full-color prompt screen that will not only tell you what to do but will also show you on a video screen. The interactive display offers step-by-step directions for administering CPR, electrode placement, shock administration, and next steps. This real-time protocol is like having a first responder at your side guiding you through the process of saving a life
