Clemson University Empowers Staff with New First Aid Technology
Clemson University at Greenville ONE prepares for medical emergencies with the Mobilize Rescue System
Clemson University’s Greenville ONE campus is empowering its staff to respond to critical medical emergencies with the Mobilize Rescue System. The innovative system uses an interactive app to help an immediate responder manage severe bleeding, allergic reactions, cardiac arrest and more while the professionals are en route.
“We made the decision to protect our staff and students with the Mobilize Rescue System. I felt it was important that we do whatever we could to prepare for unfortunate circumstances,” said Dr. Gregory Pickett, the Senior Associate Dean of Clemson University’s College of Business and Director of the Clemson University MBA Program. “It provides training for students and staff on how to use life-saving material if one of those events were to transpire.”
Clemson University is joining the ranks of law enforcement agencies, university police departments, and public and private schools across the country that deployed the system after realizing the value of empowering anyone to respond to critical medical emergencies.
“Bystanders are literally in the best position to provide medical support, but they don’t always have training or equipment – so we designed a first aid system specifically for them,” said Jason Gotham, co-founder of Mobilize Rescue Systems. “We believe that no one should have to feel helpless while they are trying to help someone in need.”
The Mobilize Rescue System includes the knowledge and equipment necessary for employees to intervene during a crisis. The knowledge comes in the format of an interactive, diagnostic app that corresponds exactly to the modern medical supplies included in each unit. By following the prompts on the app, an immediate responder can assess the problem, and learn in real-time how to manage the emergency.
“The app guides a bystander with little or no training down the path to providing lifesaving medical care through a series of simple questions while the professionals are still en route,” said Chris Strattner, the Director of Product Development.
