Multi-purpose Lifebuoy / Life buoy

Multi-purpose Lifebuoy
Multi-purpose Lifebuoy

The product is a combination of a lifebuoy and an air cushion bed. It can transform the ordinary lifebuoy monomer into a life-saving bed through deformation and inflation, which not only avoids the risk that the victims will be immersed in water for a long time, causing the body's heat to escape too fast, and the larger life-saving bed area can carry more people to be rescued, reducing the risk of death of the victims due to low temperature in the case of unreached rescuers, and also solving the problem of insufficient lifebuoy on board. And it also can bring rescuers together to improve rescue efficiency.
