iF STUDENT DESIGN AWARD / RESCUE BALL

iF STUDENT DESIGN AWARD
iF STUDENT DESIGN AWARD

This product can slow down hypothermia to save victims’ life. Hypothermia is one of the major causes of death of people who drown. Thus, the height of this product was designed to be 30cm higher than usual life buoys. This way, users’ heart can be kept above water surface. We designed special tube structure to enhance the structure of the life buoy. The volume is larger with the amount of air required stays the same. There is a GPS inside the product. On the outside, there are reflecting sheets to increase the chance of being seen by a rescue team. This product helps victims of accidents be found in the shortest time possible.
