LifeVest

The LifeVest is a wearable heart defibrillator. It’s a designed to help people who are at risk for sudden cardiac arrest.

Unlike traditional defibrillators, which are implanted in the chest, you’d wear the LifeVest outside your body. This device continuously monitors your heart with dry, non-adhesive sensing electrodes to detect life-threatening abnormal heart rhythms. If it detects a life-threatening rhythm, the LifeVest will alert you before delivering a treatment shock, giving you an opportunity to delay the treatment shock. If you lose consciousness, the device will release a gel and deliver an electrical shock to restore normal rhythm.

Automated external defibrillators are available in many public places, but LifeVest is the only one that is worn by the patient and constantly monitors the wearer for abnormal, life-threatening heart rhythm problems.
