This device connects with a deathresting person and makes deathrest complete quicker. It enhances the effect of the deathrest casket using finer blood analysis and more powerful chemicals. It must be connected to a deathrest casket to function.

The deathrest accelerator is a building added by the Biotech DLC that increases the rate of deathresting.
Deathrest accelerators can be constructed once the Deathrest research project has been completed. They require 300 Steel, 4 Components, 4,000 ticks (1.11 mins) of work, and a Construction skill of 4.

Active deathrest accelerators require a pawn capable of deathrest, and must be connected to a deathrest casket. As a pawn deathrests, it consumes 800 W of power. Each accelerator multiplies the rate at which deathrest progresses by ×1.2, reducing the minimum time to avoid Deathrest Interrupted. Up to 2 accelerators can be connected at a time. The bonuses from the two accelerators and from the casket itself stacking multiplicatively.
Like other deathrest buildings, accelerators permanently bind to a pawn once used, with no penalty for deconstruction. Deathresting pawns have their own separate limit to the buildings they can connect to, which can be increased with a deathrest capacity serum. Unlike other deathrest buildings, accelerators do not require hemogen packs as fuel.

Having 2 deathrest accelerators will provide an extra 2.2 days of a deathrester's time per 60-day year. This can help pawns awaken before the next raid appears, as well as give more work time. They are beneficial to every deathrester, as opposed to specialized buildings like psychofluid pumps and hemogen amplifiers.
As building capacity is limited in the early to mid game, accelerators are generally the first deathrest buildings you should construct. Exceptions can occur for some types of pawn, for example you may prefer the combat and movement benefit from a glucosoid pump or prefer to buff a psycaster with psychofluid pumps. Even in these exceptions, however, accelerators are usually next in line once sufficient deathrest capacity serums become available. A powerful pawn helps no-one if they're still in deathrest, and interrupting deathrest will negate benefit from all other deathrest buildings and inflict significant stat penalties.
As with all other deathrest machines, these cost a non-negligible amount of steel and components. Consider holding off on building them until you are more well established and are able to reliably and sustainably acquire steel and components.
Unlike other deathrest machines, the deathrest accelerator does not consume hemogen. However, it does consume much more power when in use. They also do not consume power while idling, unlike their contemporaries such as sleep accelerators . Hence, they can be left idle without consequence.
