In addition to supplies, each pack contains a card with a built-in audio module that provides step-by-step instructions on how to manage the emergency. The audio card also contains written instructions and pictures. When the treatment is given, any remaining contents in the pack are discarded. Individual replacement packs are available from the manufacturer.
Dave Hammond, President of Intelligent First Aid™, says the kits offered by the company are designed by medical professionals using the latest scientific standards for first aid care. Testing shows even 5th and 6th grade students can use the kit and accurately follow the directions.
The cost of the Talking Kit is $129.99. It’s currently being developed to provide instructions in several other languages. The manufacturer makes several other first aid kits without the audio component. In the future, the company would like to develop tailored kits, like for a baby-sitter or dorm room.
