Breathing Boots / Boot

Breathing Boots
Breathing Boots

When a fire occurs,people often have difficulty breathing because they have been trapped for too long. In case of emergency, it is not convenient for firemen to do artificial respiration to the trapped people, which makes the trapped people in danger. The design of the Breathing Boots can help trapped people in time to be able to breathe clean air while they are rescued. When walking, the fireman steps on the airbag at the bottom of the boots. Then clean air will be delivered to the breathing mask through the catheter, which helps the trapped people breathe.
