ZOLL’s Virtual Rescue

The ZOLL AED 3™ Virtual Rescue apps, VR Hero and VR Mobile, allow you to experience a simulated cardiac arrest rescue in virtual reality. You can see how the power of ZOLL’s Real CPR Help® guides rescuers in the performance of high-quality CPR. VR Hero and VR Mobile have been developed by VR Lab B.V.

For more than 25 years and across the globe, ZOLL professional defibrillators and AEDs are used to treat sudden cardiac arrest. Everything ZOLL does is guided by one singular focus: to push the boundaries of resuscitation technology to save more lives.

ZOLL’s VR+ Mobile and VR+ Hero demonstrate the capabilities of the AED Plus. ZOLL’s Virtual Rescue Powerheart® G5 demonstrates the capabilities of the Powerheart® G5 AED.

You can experience the ZOLL AED 3 in action by watching a 360 degrees video. This experience is for VR mobile virtual readily headsets, like Google Cardboard. For the best experience you should also use headphones for audio and music.

With the app you can download one or more language versions of the 360 video to your smartphone for offline viewing.

Usage:

  • Download the experience for the language of your choice
  • Once downloaded select the little play button
  • Follow the instructions to put on the headset and start the video

Note that you can download multiple language versions to your smartphone. When a newer version of a previously downloaded experience becomes available this will be indicated when you’re online and you can update the video.

VR Hero is available for iPhone and Android smartphones with Google Cardboard VR headsets. iPhone 6s and newer are supported as well as Samsung S6 and newer. Other and older devices may be able to run the app but are not supported.

VR Mobile

The ZOLL AED 3™ VR Mobile app allows you to be “The unexpected hero in ZOLL’s VR World”. You can experience the power of ZOLL’s Real CPR Help® which guides rescuers to achieve high-quality CPR.

With the support of the ZOLL AED 3 you will perform CPR and help saving a life in virtual reality. This experience is for VR mobile virtual readily headsets, like Google Cardboard. For the best experience you should also use headphones for audio and music. You will have to kneel down and perform CPR on a dummy. You may want to use a manikin (“Rescue Annie”) or firm pillow for this. Start the app, put your phone in your VR headset and follow the instructions. The first time you start the app you can select your preferred language. The app saves your language selection. The language selection menu can be accessed by “gazing” at the globe at the beginning of the VR experience in subsequent uses of the app.
