The company is looking to raise $2,000,000 in equity.
The PRODUCT is a patented, safe, and easy to use vacuum device for removing a lodged mass or bolus from the throat of a choking victim. The device includes a pump for creating a vacuum in a chamber which is connected seamlessly with a replaceable/disposable mouthpiece. In an emergency the CRD may be easily inserted into the victim’s mouth which depresses the tongue providing a clear, trauma-free application. By pressing a button on the device, the device will deliver the appropriate amount of instantaneous vacuum to dislodge the mass or bolus in the throat without harm or damage to the victim.
The CRD will be self-administrative by adults, and can be used on infants to elderly adults. Also, it can be use on pregnant women and others who the Heimlich Maneuver cannot help.
The Company believes the opportunity for success is significant given the focus on health and safety in the US and most of the modern world. There are approximately 5,000 choking deaths annually in the US. 95% of these result from in-home incidents. 56% of these victims are over 74 years in age. Choking is the 4th leading cause of death in children, and airway obstruction is the leading cause of unintentional injury-related deaths under the age of 1 in the United States. Current choking rescue devices do not address these needs.
