- 1 set of FRx training pads in case
For use with the FRx Training AED, these Training Pads are essential to help build potential user’s confidence in applying electrode pad with precision and accuracy.
Stored in a handy carry case, your training pads can be kept well protected when not in use, increasing the longevity of your product. Unlike clinical electrode pads, training pads can be used time and time again to practice the vital stages of a rescue process, helping to boost learner’s confidence and giving them a deeper understanding of how and why pads are placed where they are.
How to Use
Once the training pads have been attached to the manikin, your training AED will continue through the steps as though a real rescue is taking place; this will help users become familiar with operating the AED device and what to expect when delivering care to a victim of cardiac arrest.
Prior training is extremely beneficial for potential users to help them become comfortable with using an AED, and what steps must be carried out in the event of a cardiac arrest. Confidence and accuracy can help to save time in an emergency, improving a victim’s chances of survival, which is why we recommend training to everyone who plans to purchase an AED.

What is an IP rating?
An IP (Ingress Protection) rating classifies the degrees of protection of an electrical item against water and dust. Beginning with IP and followed by two numbers, the first digit is indicative of the item’s resistance to dust and the second is of its resistance to water. Protection against dust is measured from */ 0 up to 6, whereas protection against water is measured from */ 0 up to 8. The protection against these elements increases as the number does, with * / 0 telling us that the item has NO protection against either dust or water.
Why is this important?
The IP rating of a defib will tell you (and us!) whether it is suitable for the environment where it’s most likely to be used; for example, if there is a good chance your defib may be used in an outdoor environment, you will need a unit with a higher IP rating to ensure it can be used regardless the weather or terrain. If you are looking for a defibrillator more suitable for an indoors environment, you can afford to choose one with a lower IP rating, based on the other features that may be more suitable.
When a particular product is “approved” by the FDA, this marks the pass in the premarket approval (or PMA) application of a particular product which has been submitted to the FDA.
To receive approval of a device through a PMA application, the applicant in question must provide reasonable assurance of the device’s safety and effectiveness which is then challenged by the FDA before being approved.
Whilst all AEDs can be used to increase chances of survival and even save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest, FDA approved devices provide that extra piece of mind that the specific unit being used has undergone vigorous and substantial testing to ensure that that particular piece of equipment operates just as it should and provides the most effective care possible.
Many manufacturers perform their own tests on products, but not all defibrillators will undergo the same premarket approval as FDA approved devices and there is no guarantee or stamp of certification if testing has taken place with non-FDA approved products.
