About CU Medical Systems
As the only AED company based and operating out of Korea, CU Medical Systems, Inc. was established in 2001 and now has well over 10 years worth of experience from within the industry.
Specialising in defibrillators, the company is involved in the research, development and manufacturing of AEDs and targets domestic and overseas markets with exports reaching 120 countries worldwide.
However, their first foray into the AED market came in the form of an ECG monitoring system which was developed to work hand in hand with defibrillator technology.
In 2002, CU Medical then launched their first defibrillator model, Paramedic CU-ER1 AED, which was then subsequently selected as “World First – Class Product” by the Korean Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Energy.
2011 proved to a great year at the company with them being placed in ‘Korea’s Top 100 Companies to Work for’ before their latest defibrillator was released – the I-PAD SP1 defibrillator.
Their flagship AED model, the I-PAD SP1, gained recognition in 2013 when it was nominated as the device of choice for the British Heart Foundation’s part funded AED scheme across the UK.
The unit was put through a rigorous testing procedure and came out on top, meaning the unit will, for three years, be involved in the scheme and be placed in public locations throughout the UK with the financial backing of the BHF.
They have very recently released the I-PAD SP2 defibrillator which looks likely to eclipse its younger brother with a very similar design and easy to use functions combined with up to date AED technology.
In 2014 the company established an American subsidiary, CU America Corp as they begin to grow across the globe and develop into a market leader amongst AED and Health manufacturers.
