Brunswick Biomedical Technologies –
Saving Lives through Innovation
The Brunswick Story – Pioneers in medical bioengineering
From day one, Brunswick and CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) have been intertwined. In fact, Brunswick not only created the acronym CPR, our company was awarded the trademark and patent for its life-saving machine: The first automatic Heart Lung Resuscitator (HLR).
In the early 1960’s, Brunswick Biomedical engineers invented the first “hands-free” automated CPR system working with Dr. Archer Gordon, whom many consider the “father of CPR.”
Brunswick literally has been “saving lives through innovation” since World War II, when medical devices were in their infancy. Working with Boston’s preeminent medical community, Brunswick was at the forefront designing some of the first prosthetic pulmonary devices and machinery for performing open heart surgery.
Today, Brunswick Biomedical Technologies continues to lead the world in emergency medical innovation. Internationally known and respected, Brunswick is dedicated to producing the best emergency life-saving equipment available. We never forget someone’s life depends on it.
