In the UK only 1 in 10 people survive cardiac arrest outside of hospital.

Traditionally CPR is taught as a one off lesson where waiting lists are long, training is expensive and takes place in limited locations. Modern, digital methods also lack the physicality needed to learn CPR in full.

By combining CPR training with a daily object, such as a water bottle, SaL encourages its user to practice chest compressions and gain muscle memory while learning the lifesaving steps for hands only CPR.

SaL is a compact, portable and reusable object making it the accessible solution to CPR training.
