2020 Business Accelerator Candidate Abigail Kohler

Abigail Kohler

First Place Recipient

Abigail Kohler co-founded ResusciTech to empower people to save lives by taking action during medical emergencies.

Her passion for medicine and helping people maintain their composure during emergencies drew her to issues related to sudden cardiac arrest and CPR quality.

ResusciTech’s app, SMART Certification, provides people with convenient, smartphone-based training that provides Hands-Only CPR compression practice with real-time feedback.

Kohler soon hopes to release a mobile medical app to give people real-time compression feedback during actual emergencies.

ResusciTech recently won the MedTech track of the Rhode Island Business Competition, placed in the top six as a finalist in MassChallenge Rhode Island and finished third in the Brown Venture Prize.

Before starting ResusciTech, Kohler graduated in May from Brown University with a Bachelor of Science degree in biomedical engineering.

While attending Brown, Abigail worked as a data analyst and software developer in a bioacoustics research lab, co-founded a student group dedicated to using engineering for humanitarian causes and served as a teaching assistant in an instrumentation design class.
