Life Cushion / cushion

Life Cushion
Life Cushion

Life Cushion is an escape apparatus for residents under 6th floor to gain survival in some extreme conditions, such as fire and earthquake. Before jumping, fasten the rope to the waist, let the cushion hang outside the window to ensure the rope between the body and the cushion is vertical to the ground. The cushion will hit the ground first and inflate automatically and immediately with the similar principle of safety airbag before the body hits the ground. The air cushion will protect the body as a elastic buffer. Life Cushion can be also used in flood. Switch the air generator manually then the air cushion can act as a life boat.
