CorPatch® Trainer User Guide
The CorPatch® Trainer and the free CorPatch® Trainer app can guide and help you and your course Trainees to perform better compressions and high-quality CPR based on very accurate measurements of chest compressions.
Data is collected through the CorPatch® Trainer and stored in the free CorPatch® Trainer app, which makes it easy for training institutes to adapt it in your first aid courses.
The free CorPatch® Trainer app offers greater insight into each individual Trainee’s performance and provides an overview for multiple courses or training sessions.
The free CorPatch® Trainer app is compatible with iOS and Android devices. The App requires Android 8.0 respectively iOS 14.0 or later versions and Bluetooth (BLE) 4.2.
We recommend updating your device’s operating system regularly.

Offer CorPatch® to your Trainees
As a Training Institute you have the option to offer a CorPatch® to your Trainees after their course to give them something to practice short 4 minute trainings every 3 months at home and thereby be optimally prepared in case they witness real-life cardiac arrest.
The CorPatch® will remind them of the Training Institute where they had their last course, and we encourage an annual refresher course with our partners.
CorPatch® Trainer can be used by anyone strong enough to perform CPR.
The CorPatch® Trainer must exclusively be used on manikins or similar objects in first aid training sessions and never in a real-life situation on a person suffering from cardiac arrest or any other health-related illness.
Do not use the CorPatch® Trainer in conjunction with any mechanical or automated compression devices not developed or explicitly approved by SmartResQ/CorPatch®.
Do not use the CorPatch® Trainer on top of defibrillation pads from an AED.
If the CorPatch® Trainer appears to be damaged e.g. develops cracks or sharp edges, please discontinue use.
The CorPatch® Trainer is not intended for use in a moving environment including but not limited to travel in air, sea or road. If used in a situation like this, the device may provide inaccurate feedback.
The CorPatch® Trainer is not intended for use if the manikin is on a soft surface e.g. a couch or bed, as the depth feedback during such conditions might appear inaccurate. Make sure the manikin is lying on a firm surface.
Please remove the CorPatch® Trainer and the adhesive patch after each training session, and clean patch residues off the manikin immediately to avoid damage to the manikin.
