Soulsalt / Survival and emergency


Soulsalt is an emergency survival device which can be equipped on the shipwrecked survivor’s wrists or their life vest. It is simply powered by sea water. As soon as it drops into the sea it would be generated.

Soulsalt has two main features glowing and signal transmitting which can not only comfort the survivor but also provide the survivor’s direction to rescuers. As a result, Soulsalt can really improve the efficiency of rescuing and increase the survival rate of victims.
