Life Power / Life buoy

Life Power
Life Power

Many drowning victims couldn't  survive even wearing the life-jacket.Most of the time was because the victims’ physical strength was not enough to swim to land. Besides, the body’s immune system of were damaged because of the sunlight exposure.So finally they died.  The design “Life power” adds the pusher which provides energy by the solar energy in the life-jacket. “Life power” can provide driving force  at a time when people are tired in order to help them  reach the land faster and finally get rescue.
