Cardiac Resuscitation Device
Farm helped Welch Allyn create the next generation Propaq MD, which was later acquired by Zoll. The rugged, yet highly portable patient monitor and defibrillator designed to meet the rigors of military use while being an effective critical care tool in the cramped interiors of rescue helicopters and transport vehicles.
Farm's team spent time with military and EMS personnel to understand critical and unmet needs. The result was a highly optimized internal component architecture and a product enclosure that minimizes volume and maximizes the functional utility and ergonomics of its use, resulting in a compact, easy-to-use system that’s 60% smaller and 40% lighter than any current competitor’s device. To enhance the system’s operational flexibility, we designed an attachment system that allows the rescue crew to secure the monitor with the patient in any transport situation.
Since its launch, the Propaq MD has been a global success, prompting Zoll to acquire Welch Allyn’s defibrillation group as part of an effort to enhance their emergency care product offering.
