While AED’s are ever-more available and affordable, some organizations still struggle with cost issues. Most AED’s go unused and the electrodes, batteries, and other consumables end up expiring and needing replacement. For these environments, the cost of an AED is in the up-front expense and the cost of consumables over time rather than cost-per-use.
For many organizations and businesses, particularly seasonal businesses, it makes little sense to own an AED. Imagine a summer camp with a two month season - this organization would end up paying for batteries and electrodes and using the device only two out of 12 months.
Most cost-effective options exists - our Short Term Lease program allows organizations to lease an AED for a season. They receive an up-to-date, recall-free AED with batteries and electrodes guaranteed for the length of that season. Configurations include adult-only or adult/pediatric, and the unit is shipped to the site, and the customer simply ships it back at the end of the season. Cost for most leases under 4 months is around $275.00 in most markets.
