Our journey started at Sea. With no hope of ambulance support and hours or days without helicopter rescue, sea crews needed the best AED available to save their lives. There’s no cure, CPR won?t fix SCA. You have to deliver a shock to the heart to restore its natural rhythm and with every minute that passes without a shock from a defibrillator, survival rates drop by 20%. Together with Defibtech, we developed LifeForce, the most rugged, simple, quickest charge-to-shock time, and the only marine approved, AED on the market. With a product that could save lives in the world’s toughest situations, we saw the need for a simple and effective AED in the UK. Our partnership expanded and Martek Lifecare was born.
