Company description

The CPRMattress offers quality CPR faster in hospitals. Current hospital mattresses offer only 41% effective chest compressions during CPR. Current hospital procedures increase that to only 53% effective chest compressions and also require CPR to be stopped to place a backboard under the patient, decreasing the chance of survival. The CPRMattress offers a surface that provides an outstanding 81% efficiency for chest compressions. 


The CPRMattress offers the same qualities of an everyday hospital mattress. However when the patient is found in Cardiac Arrest the nurse pushes a button and the mattress transforms into a rigid surface.  In as little as 10 seconds the CPRMattress offers a surface for superior CPR without the need to stop CPR and place a backboard under the patient and also offers quality chest compressions sooner than current practices.

Business model
