Are you aware of the charity Pace4Life and the good work they perform?
We at Cremated Remains Transport Services have been supporting Pace4Life since 2013 and have been collecting used pacemakers from numerous Funeral Directors up and down the country. These are delivered to a central location, sterilised and re-used for the benefits of the families and patients in developing countries around the world.
Thousands of Pacemakers are sat in boxes in Funeral Directors gathering dust right across the country. Pacemakers are designed to be single use and EU rules mean they cannot be re-used in Europe. However, the UK Charity Pace4Lifeworking in conjunction with the University of Michigan are collecting these devices alongside the National Society of Independant & Allied Funeral Directors (SAIF) for re-use with patients in developing countries.
Balasundaran Lavan said speaking to BBC Breakfast; "We're taking consent forms, we are getting patients or family members to donate these simple little devices. Clean them, test them and if they're fit for human re-use with 70% battery life or more we are getting them re-sterilised and looking to get them implanted in the developing world"
