Float / Rescue equipment


Float" is mainly composed of a central platform, a floating board and a stabilizing airbag. The self-rescue function is to press the red button on the floating board when a person in the water approaches it, and the board will change from standing upright to floating on the sea surface, so that the person in the water will use less energy to get up to the board and out of the water. The assisted rescue function allows the rescuer to turn on the rotary switch on the central platform, which separates the floating board from the central platform and connects it with a rope, enabling a safer rescue and safe return.
