Save a life, really save a life
A revolution in the way we learn CPR, LIFESAVER fuses interactivity and live-action film to teach users the skills needed to save a person’s life if they were to suffer from a cardiac arrest – from Unit9 website
The Resuscitation Council, U.K., similar to the American Red Cross, is promoting a compelling Interactive film and app available for smartphones, tablets and PCs which combines interactivity, storytelling, role playing to introduce and reinforce lifesaving tips.
LIFESAVER, produced by Unit9 and directed by Martin Percy, combines simulation, gamification, and first-person perspective to put the user in scenarios that test and teach first response CRP to heart attack victims.
The surprisingly emotional digital experience is ingenious in it’s filming and scenario creation. The lessons and experiences are more evocative than the typical training in a classroom setting with a plastic dummy, such as Rusesci Annie.
It is now available. Try it out; it could be the difference between life and death.
