AED Team chooses the Defibtech Lifeline AED for fitness centers and gyms. The Lifeline AED is durable, easy to use, and reliable.
There is a reason that Planet Fitness uses the Defibtech Lifeline AED in the bulk of its gyms throughout the United States. This low-cost AED is highly reliable, easy to use, and can withstand some trauma. IP rating and drop tests are benchmarked in a lab under standardized conditions. For real world testing, a video showing the Defibtech Lifeline being tested on a farm - and remarkably surviving - was released. The Lifeline AED was run over by a truck, sprayed with a pressure washer, and dropped from a bucket loader. After all of this trauma, it was turned on and was still functioning. With only two buttons (Power and Shock) and loud voice commands, the Lifeline is very easy to use in an emergency. The AED self-tests daily and will alert to a battery or pad failure with an annoying beep.
Defibtech is a smaller and lesser known AED brand. Compared to the giants in the industry - Zoll (which owns Cardiac Science), Stryker (which owns HeartSine), and Philips, Defibtech may lack the resources if a large recall were to effect their product line.

Simple to Use:
Simple, clear, and straightforward: there are only two buttons on the unit, a green button to turn the unit on, and a red one to shock the patient if needed.
The Lifeline AED:
Simple and intuitive. As protocols change over time, your unit can be upgraded in the field simply by inserting a data card. Data from the unit is recorded and easily retrieved from the device using a data card.
Clear Voice Prompts:
Saving lives, while rewarding, can be stressful. A calm voice leads the user through the rescue, clearly and concisely stating each instruction, one step at a time. Brightly lit progress lights provide clear visual text guidance to reinforce voice instructions.
Long Life Battery:
Two long-life batteries are available: a 5-year battery that will deliver 125 shocks or work continuously for 8 hours or a 7-year battery, unique in the industry, which will deliver 300 shocks or work continuously for 16 hours.
Designed for the Real World:
Lightweight, fully integrated design with no lids or moving parts that would confuse or delay a rescue; a roomy handle big enough even for gloved hands, and rubberized surfaces to ensure a sure grip in an emergency.
Active Status Indicator:
The actively illuminated status indicator shows unit readiness, to ensure that the unit is ready to perform anytime, every time.
"Locate the AED!" Time is of the essence in a rescue. The highly visible yellow color makes the unit easy to locate and deploy.
Award Winning Ergonomic Design:
Compact, portable and lightweight the Lifeline AED has won numerous awards for design and innovation. It was even displayed at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City as an example of innovative design!
The Lifeline AED has a training version of itself: the Defibtech Trainer AED. The Defibtech Trainer AED mimics the Lifeline AED in form and function, except that all rubberized exterior surfaces are red instead of black, to clearly distinguish the unit as a training device. As a result, the user is training with a training device that truly feels like the real thing.
Extremely durable; manufactured to withstand dust and water ingress; tested to military standards for shock and vibration; jet aircraft and helicopter tested.
Safe and Effective:
The Lifeline AED uses biphasic technology, a clinically proven waveform, and algorithm to deliver shocks and save lives. This is one of the most widely used impedance compensated waveforms that has extensive clinical experience-and success-in thousands of defibrillators around the world. Evaluation in hundreds of publications has demonstrated this technology to be the safest and most effective when it comes to saving lives.
