|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
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
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.
