Flexible Life Buoy / Life buoy

Flexible Life Buoy
Flexible Life Buoy

Flexible life buoy is a life buoy that can be large or small. It can change the size of the life buoy for people of different sizes. This lifebuoy can be used by adults of normal size, obese or emaciated, or children. Flexible life buoy can be deformed after being subjected to external force, suitable for various body types. After placing the flexible life buoy under the armpit, it will retract back after the external force disappears, until it is fixed under the armpit. It does not require the person falling into the water to waste the energy to fix the lifebuoy.
