Defibtech Technology
Defibtech is able to successfully deliver a no-compromise AED design at an industry leading price because of the engineering that has gone into the design of our products and the advanced technology used to manufacture these world-class devices.

The Defibtech AED was designed by engineers with extensive medical device design experience and also, just as importantly, high-tech high-volume consumer product development experience. The members of our team have developed hospital equipment (e.g., arrhythmia detection algorithms, ultrasound imaging equipment, filmless x-ray systems, blood flow monitors, trans-telephonic defibrillators), implantable and invasive medical devices (e.g., heart valves, catheters), military technology (e.g., rocket ultrasound inspection systems), consumer products (e.g., high-end audio equipment, consumer phones), and commercial products (e.g., phone company central office electronics, ultra-high speed image processing systems).

This wide variety of skills allow us to use techniques that are not typically known to design groups in conventional medical device companies. By combining this cross-industry experience with the latest computer aided design (CAD) tools, we are able to create a design that is not only technologically outstanding, but can be produced reliably in high volumes at a cost-effective price. This type of approach enables the design, engineering, and manufacturing teams to visualize changes and make adjustments to continually improve the product while ensuring its manufacturability.

From the very beginning, our physicians, electronic designers, software developers, and plastic designers worked together to create a well integrated design. This allowed us to created a product that has the features the market needs, is reliable and can be easily manufactured. As one example, our AEDs have no screws inside – the design is so well integrated that all the internal components snap together during manufacturing – resulting in a more reliable design (no screws inside to vibrate loose in the field) and a lower cost (no screws to buy, less manufacturing time). These types of innovations result in a better product, at a lower cost.

The electronics design begins with schematics that become part of an integrated CAD design process. These schematics are converted to a physical layout directly in the computer allowing the engineers and the plastic designers to work interactively towards a fully integrated design. Defibtech created a virtual product entirely on the computer to make sure that when the design was produced it would work reliably and be easy to manufacture.

These same computer databases were used to create the production tooling: the printed circuit boards, the plastics tools, the automated assembly programs, the in-circuit testing fixtures and so on. By transferring this information electronically, many of the errors that creep in during a conventional approach to production engineering are avoided and eliminated.

Defibtech's AEDs are manufactured using the most modern, automated, production and testing equipment. The computer-controlled assembly process ensures that the devices are produced exactly the same way every time. Each device and its components and sub-systems are tested and tracked throughout the manufacturing process using state-of-the-art testing equipment, bar-coding technology and custom manufacturing software. Before the product even reaches final inspection, it has already been optically inspected by a computer vision system, in-circuit tested by an automated ICT testing system that checks thousands of electrical parameters and functionally checked by custom designed test equipment.

All of these automated testing steps provide an extensive check of the components that make up the Defibtech AED and ensure the system's readiness to perform a rescue. Defibtech takes it yet another step further – each and every AED is individually inspected by a trained Defibtech technician and tested on a patient simulator before shipment.

The mass-production design of our devices and the technology used in the manufacturing of our AEDs, give us the production capacity to supply the ever-increasing demand of the AED market. This means that our customers aren't left waiting for their life-saving equipment to arrive as a result of manufacturing capacity limitations.

By using the most advanced design and manufacturing techniques available, Defibtech is able to provide the most cost-effective product with the highest quality and reliability.
