By specializing in standby, stabilization, and vitrification, Suspended Animation can make faster progress toward enhanced capability than a full-service cryonics orgainization that must divide its attention over a wider range of tasks.
Suspended Animation (SA) was established in 2002 in South Florida as a for-profit corporation with the goal of providing the best possible standby, stabilization, and vitrification procedures for members of cryonics organizations. The founders believed that if the company did not seek members or provide patient storage, it would be better able to focus on research and development work. Also, if Suspended Animation assisted other organizations instead of attempting to compete with them, cryonics generally would benefit.
Suspended Animation is the only company focusing primarily on research and development work in standby, stabilization, vitrification, and transport procedures for cryonics patients.
