NOA is developped for people who are keen on sports, in or on the water. The shirt ensures freedom of movement and safety. The new design appeals also to people who dont wear life vests because of aesthetical reasons. It has an integrated, inconspicuous safety-system with two different air chambers: one as assistance with 50N buoyancy, the other as rescue with 150N.
If needed, the assisting part of the shirt can be blown up to support the user in several kind of leisure activities as swimming in a river or snorkeling.
In emergencies a floating body inflates automatically with the function of a conventional life vest.
