Beat is an advanced cushion speaker for CPR training, that allows anyone to learn CPR with rhythms of familiar songs. Beat offers a special education program to enable anyone to perform a professional CPR for cardiac arrest which requires first aid immediately. The speaker plays selected songs to help trainees maintain a steady rhythm of 100 to 120 BPM. User can understand proper chest compression pace while listening these songs. Moreover, an embedded sensor provides haptic feedback to make you learn proper compression power.
"A neat solution for a new problem. Consider how the object could communicate and help the user to know "where" to place their hands when doing CPR, as that can be as important."
