BlackHägen Design was tasked to create and fast-track a next-generation AED. From product definition to completion of the alpha prototype design, the entire project took approximately six-months (compared to at least two to three years in a typical corporate environment). BlackHägen Design provided the industrial and UX design, usability engineering, mechanical engineering, electronic engineering, embedded software engineering, and prototype functional testing.
Elliot is an intelligent, intuitive, virtually indestructible, lightweight, affordable, and reliable AED. Focusing on minimized size, weight, and cost, as well as maximized ease-of-use, and long shelf life, the revolutionary AED includes wireless telemetry and optional supporting devices in the system architecture. The result of this intensive technical development yields the world’s smallest 2000V/150J AED powered by CR123 batteries at a substantially lower cost than similar performing “full-size” devices.
