LUCAS 3, v3.1 chest compression system - automatic CPR machine

Your partner in advanced resuscitation

Deliver high-performance, continuous chest compressions with less strain, micromanagement and caregiver risk.

Shown to improve CPR quality, on the move and over long durations1-3

The LUCAS device extends the reach of care by maintaining chest compressions during transport to advanced lifesaving therapies, including ECMO or PCI in the cath lab. By increasing provider safety, avoiding fatigue over long durations and reducing transport risks by allowing caregivers to sit belted, the LUCAS device can help calm the scene and provide an extra pair of hands.
