RSC Respirator / respiratory device

RSC Respirator
RSC Respirator

The RSC mask is a new concept for respiratory devices for the use in confined spaces.
Pure oxygen in combination with soda lime, normally used for oxygen reprocessing in submarines, allow a completely new, ultra compact and light design. Next to a manual
activation a sensor interlinked to the human organism and constantly monitoring the pulse rate, can automatically start a supporting respiration in case of an oxygen deficiency. Therefore the RSC mask protects the user preemptively from fainting of oxygen deficiency,
that is mostly being detected too late because of stress and exhaustion, when working in
confined spaces.
