Middlesex Tennis Defibrillator Offer
Middlesex Tennis are pleased to announce that as a benefit of registration they will provide funding support all Middlesex registered clubs wishing to purchase a defibrillator. Middlesex Tennis will contribute £660 towards the total cost of £1,320 to any club wishing to purchase this life saving piece of equipment.
A defibrillator gives the heart an electric shock in cases of cardiac arrest. Acting quickly when someone is in cardiac arrest and fighting for their life is crucially important. For every minute that passes without CPR and defibrillation, chances of survival are reduced by 10%.
We have chosen to work with Hampshire based WEL Medical to provide the iPAD SP1. This stands for Public Access Defibrillator and is a nominated device of the British Heart Foundation. The iPAD SP1 is designed to be used by laypeople who will be able to familiarise themselves with the device through online videos and pictorial quick reference guides. In addition to this, during operation the iPAD uses a series of illustrations with flashing lights and calm voice prompts to talk a rescuer through how to use it.
For the first twenty five clubs that purchase a defibrillator, Middlesex Tennis will contribute £660 – 50% of the total cost.
The total cost of this package inc. VAT is £1,320. The Package consists of:
- 1 x iPAD SP1 AED www.ipad-aed.com, see image
- 1 x Carry Case
- 2 x sets of dual adult / child pads
- 2 x AED starter kits
- 1 x Alarmed indoor cabinet
- Plus a call of an additional battery & 3 sets of pads
