Swim Guard increases the safety while swimming outside. This light weight rescue tool fits tightly to the body. In case of emergency it keeps the person over water with an inflatable lifting body, even when fainting. The design consists of a neoprene-belt with a compressed lifting body. By triggering the inflatable mechanism by a gas cartridge a GPS signal is send to rescue workers at the same time for a faster rescue. Swim Guard gives not only athletics but also persons with age and illness-related restrictions (e.g. cardiac defect) the chance for fearless swimming in a lake without fatal accidents.
