First Aid Blanket

The CPR Express is an easy-to-use First Aid blanket designed for emergency use by random users who were not trained to be professional live-savers.

What should you do if you see someone laying on the ground?

Each year,

about 475,000 Americans die from a cardiac arrest.

BUT, 

45% of cardiac arrest patients got saved after the saver applying CPR.

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation
is an emergency lifesaving procedure performed when the heart stops beating. Immediate CPR can double or triple chances of survival after cardiac arrest
However,
people won't able to apply CPR correctly if they are untrained.

Don't need to meter by yourself
Each step of the CPR progress has a time duration. The timer will count down the time for you. Press the start button on the timer and proceed with the CPR. When you meet the end of a section, the timer will inform you by the alarm.
Clear Instructions
The blanket has each step printed on the blanket. Just follow the instructions and the user will be able to check a person's consciousness and process CPR. 
Position Guide
With the middle line and holder, the blanket helps the user find the correct spot to do chest compressions; meanwhile, it keeps the person's body warm.
Know your force
In order to let the user know if he applies the right amount of force, I add a pressure sensor underneath the graph, which connects with the LED pad, shows the amount of force each time the user do chest compression.
