In 2009 we introduced you to Oneal Clash, a Crest Hill resident who wanted to help people learn CPR better with his device Transproto Maximillion. Then in 2011 we caught up with his new version Transmax. Now his hard work is paying off.
Clash’s invention has caught the eye of distributors across the country and is being manufactured in two states.
The device: a human-shaped mannequin that better demonstrates how CPR would feel on a real person, in addition to seeing what’s going on both inside and outside of the body.
Using modern technology, Transmax allows you to see the heart beating, lungs filling with air, and brain response, so that users can tell whether they are performing CPR correctly.
“It’s going to help save lives, because when you’re doing chest compressions with Transmax, it’s going to create a synapse in your mind. So when you’re doing chest compressions on a real person then you’re going to remember Transmax and possibly have an opportunity to save a person’s life,” said Clash.
Clash’s next step is to present Transmax to a panel of investors in California. From there he’ll either pair up and start his own manufacturing company, or possibly sell the business.
