Diving for disabled
Diving for disabled

Discovery and adventure has always been part of humanity. Scuba diving is a way to experience the world in which we live. Paraplegic divers have to use their arms to swim and manoeuvre under water. Disabled people usually chained to the wheelchair can now feel the sense of weightlessness and complete freedom of movement. Buoyancy and body trim can be adjusted via the chest mounted control to assist the user into a horizontal, vertical, or angular position, increasing the freedom of movement & enhancing the overall experience.
