Studies show that CPR after a cardiac arrest double the survival rate of the victim only if the person providing the CPR presses hard and fast enough. About 75% of the people do not know how to do CPR. And even if people are trained, the quality of the chest compression is often not good enough. Together with Harry Palsma (MD), expert in bystander CPR, we developed SamCPR. This revolutionary smartwatch app gives you feedback on the depth and tempo of chest compressions.
Smartwatch manufacturers can get this software for free if they integrate this app into their devices. Palsma's wish is that everyone wearing a smartwatch can automatically get feedback as soon as they start providing hands-only CPR. He says: “One day it may be the best reason for having a smartwatch.”
