Lifeblt / Lifeblt


Even the strongest swimmers can find themselves in an emergency situation. Cramping of the leg is an example of how such an emergency might arise. Lifebelt could prevent a tragedy from occurring.
Lifebelt is an expanding flotation device that a swimmer can activate if they run into difficulties in the sea. Lifebelt can easy to carry in a waist. And it will not affect people's normal swimming. In an emergency situation, swimmers can press the switch automatically filling a life buoy. The compressed air rushes out to rapidly expand the belt and create a floatation device.
