The Revival Vest is used to bring Free Divers that black out under water to the surface, in an upright safety position ready for resuscitation.
Footfalls and Heartbeats smart fabric technology monitors respiration underwater. More specifically, the fabric detects change in circumference around the chest while the diver is suppressing breathing. If the user blacks out the body becomes limp and the life vest is triggered to inflate.
Upon inflation the diver is put in a laid back safety position with the head above water, preventing further intake of fluid into the lungs while maintaining availability for rescue and resuscitation.
