It is not often that a truly innovative new device comes on the SCUBA landscape, but DiverGuard is just that. DiverGuard combines two separate diver signaling technologies with an electronic breathing monitoring system, and all in a unit no larger than a power inflator.
DiverGuard was designed to help prevent the 62% of dive fatalities caused by drowning. The breathing monitoring system, which can be easily self-installed on a BCD by any diver, will initiate both light and sound alarms in the event diver ceases breathing for 30 seconds or more. Additionally, the unit is designed to self-inflate the BCD to help raise an unconscious diver to the surface, all without any human input. In cases where a diver may have altered their breathing pattern for photographic or other reasons and is not in distress, a simple override is incorporated in the system to prevent an accidental trip to the surface.
But there is more: This unit also incorporates an underwater signaling system and a surface emergency signaling system, along with a 500 dive battery and automated device self-testing. This is a unique piece of dive gear. Not only will it make a diver’s time underwater safer, it also eliminates the need for additional dive devices. For a MSRP of $349, it is one of the most original and impactful safety devices to hit the underwater world in years. For more information go to www.diverguard.com.
