SOS- Lifebelt / Lifebelt

SOS- Lifebelt
SOS- Lifebelt

The biggest reason for regrets in the event of drowning is the lack of timely rescue and the inability to detect the correct position of the drowning person. Or in some cases, no-one can detect someone drowning and misses the opportunity for timely rescue. The swimmers can wear the light SOS-Lifebelt on the wrist. Press the emergency button when drowning. The plastic ring inside the SOS-Lifebelt instantly inflates based on the principles of safety air bag so that hands of the drowned persons can lift up the water surface and the people on shore can detect the drowning person immediately.
