In this work a Smart-Watch application, that is able to monitor the frequency and depth of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and provide interactive corrective feedback is described. We have evaluated the system with a total of 41 subjects who had undertaken a single episode of CPR training several years previously. This training was part of a First Aid course for lay people, commonly accessed in this population. The evaluation was conducted by measuring participant CPR competence using the "gold standard" of CPR training [10], namely frequency and compression depth. The evaluation demonstrated that the Smart Watch feedback system provided a significant improvement in the participant performance. For example, it doubled the number of people who could maintain bot the parameters in the recommended range for at least 50% of the time.
