莲坐 / Lotus sitting


The rescue bionic product we designed is based on the stem and leaf structure of a plant called "Wang Lian". A large number of raised grid-like structures are used on the back. Its thick structure is hollow inside, with a maximum width of 2 cm. Reduce your own weight and increase buoyancy, which will help carry weight.
The product was originally in compressed form, so people can easily carry it anytime, anywhere. Whether it is a child or an adult, when a danger occurs, it can be placed in the water to expand the complete form. People can use it to float on water and wait for rescue to reduce accidents.
