A battery-powered CPR device that can be worn around by people who are liable to cardiac arrests. This type of CPR is to remedy scenarios where the cardiac arrest victim is alone or far from a Hospital. The CPR can also monitor the patient’s heart and send prophylactic messages to nearby hospitals if the heartbeat patterns that usually precede a cardiac arrest are recorded.
There are other CPR devices that are both portable and automated. However, these models can not be worn around. Some models usually require a second person to activate them and will not be any good to someone who is alone when he has a cardiac arrest. The prophylactic measures that are provided by the proposed automated CPR can lead to the development of medical solutions that, in the future, can prevent cardiac arrests from happening at all. They also give the patients a better idea of the activities and situations that they should avoid because of their medical conditions by notifying them whenever a cardiac arrest is likely to happen. The patterns that are recorded before cardiac arrests can be used to test for a patient’s susceptibility to cardiac arrest in cases where the heart problem symptoms are less pronounced.

Something like this? https://ifworlddesignguide.com/entry/304010-automatic-cpr

Other existing auto CPR devices are too big and heavy to be worn https://www.medgadget.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/Automated-CPR.jpg

I guess there is no easy way around the battery weight and size of the heart press
