For centuries, the main lifesaving device at sea has been a boat, originally used as a general-purpose craft for the ships use, but then gradually becoming reserved for lifesaving purposes. As ships became larger, carrying more crew and passengers, these boats became larger, with specifically designed launching devices. This of course meant that more space was required, along with further maintenance and training for they’re launching and use. In recent years we have seen the enclosed boat concept, which, while serving the purpose of protection of the occupants it severely limits the boats use to, abandonment and survivability of the occupants. Such boats are still essential on many types of ships, especially those carrying passengers. As well as becoming compulsory as supplement lifesaving devices, permission was given in many cases for these rafts to replace the traditional lifeboat resulting in cruise ships now only being required to have sufficient lifeboats for 75% of those on board and many ships not required to have any lifeboat.
Having a place of safety and allowing time for survivors to recover before being rescued at sea is behind the newly designed SEAPOD™ inflatable survival platform. The device combines the latest technology, with proven research to solve the age old problem of surviving critical hours before rescue comes; problems of quick deployment, hypothermia, visibility of survivors and staying safely out of the water. The SEAPOD™ could also be used as a boarding aid as it is a stable enough platform to help the survivor board which ever vessel is rescuing them.
UK Company, Salvare Worldwide, has developed the ingenious SEAPOD™ as a solution. A lightweight, easily deployed, fully interlocking inflatable life saving platform based on the Carley Float concept. Unlike the Carley Float, the SEAPOD™is light, it weighs less than 7kg or 3Kg if using the MINI-POD™) and is packed in a protected valiase) It offers excellent protection from the onset of Hypothermia and increases the chances of survival. This is because it enables a person to get easily onto basically the surface of the water and out of the hyperthermia zone. The SEAPOD™ can be stowed on large ships, coastal vessels, small boats, helicopters and aircraft alike. Where reliance upon lifejackets alone is a thing of the past.
Second Breath is a miniature, self-contained air dispenser that is worn around the wrist with the ease and comfort of a watch band. But underneath this marvel of simplicity and convenience lies a sophisticated and ingenious engineering design. Air is actuated through a rubber mouthpiece on the device. It is neither tank-based nor is air actuated through a tube as with all other emergency oxygen supply devices currently available. Its small size and unique design will not interfere with the wearers' activities. Second Breath is totally unique, there is no similar competitive product on the market.
Second Breath is refillable via hand pump or scuba tank. It can also be built into apparel such as a wetsuit. Made of light weight aluminium, current model provides approximately 6-8 breaths of air on land or 3-5 breaths in water. It is refillable with either a hand-pump or air tank. With the rate of participation in water sports increasing exponentially worldwide, Second Breath could well be as important as the “seatbelt” of water sports.
