Project idea. Ultralite Inflatable Life Jacket and Swim Tube by Restube [projects660538636]

Continuously positive feedback for our Restube Lifeguard

More and more people have Restube and take it on vacation. That this makes totally sense shows the latest story of a Restube user.

“On a snorkel trip on the Maldives I did not want to wear a life jacket. To fully experience the underwater world, I wanted to be able to dive down freely to the beautiful coral reefs.” 

Good thing he was wearing his Restube. He was able to help himself and one other snorkeler out of a critical situation: 

“My power reserves were declining after getting caught in an undercurrent. When I say the boat far away I decided to trigger Restube. This instant flotation helped me get out of this uncomfortable situation.After triggering and on my next dive I was able to safe another participant in the snorkel tour. He was weakened and panicked. By handing him my Restube I was able to stabilize him and pull him back to the boat.” 

Your story motivates us every day to make even more people have a good time around water!

Certification Status of the Ultralite Lifejacket

Again and again swimmers get into dangerous situations. The German Red Cross in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is starting to use drones equipped with Restube buoys. 

Again and again swimmers get into dangerous situations. The German Red Cross in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is starting to use drones equipped with Restube buoys. Last week a surflife saving drone saved 2 youths from drowning. The swimmers aged 15 and 17 got into trouble on the New South Wales coast near Lennox Head. Australian surflife savers were in the middle of flight training when the two were discovered 700m out to sea. Within minutes the pilot had the Drone above the troubled swimmers and deployed the buoyancy device which inflated upon contact with water. Thanks to the buoyancy both were able to reach the beach safely. 

For us from RESTUBE the deployment of a Restube buoy via a drone was the logical development following the existing RESTUBE system which water lovers can wear whenever they are in or near water. Back in 2008, as part of a study project at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Restube founder Christopher Fuhrhop developed the idea to use drones for water rescue. A prototype was created. Today, 10 years later with advanced technology this idea has become reality.  

Across the world lifesavers, drone manufacturers and Restube are working on that idea that has proven itself in a real-life scenario in Australia. The Deputy Premier of New SouthWales John Barilaro talks of a historical Rescue: ”Never before has a Drone fitted with a flotation device been used to rescue swimmers like this.” 

Even in Germany tests at the coast, in lakes and rivers were successfully. The German Red Cross in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern will be the first to start a pilot-project involving 15 Drones equipped with Restube buoys. The first 20 Pilots are in training and other rescue organizations will follow. The Drone enables the rescuer to place as first aid a Restube buoy precisely to the person in need. Within a few years lifesaving drones at beaches and lakes could become part of everyday life. This new technology will help to save more lives.

Drones save lives - Restube starting with drone rescue

Dear Backer Community, 

it's right before christmas, we hope you have all presents together and are looking forward to spend a good time with friends and family. 

The last months we have been working hard to get the Swim Tube delivered to you - many of you are writing us about using it in the water, we love it!  

We have also been pushing certification of the Ultralite Life Jacket. Unfortunately we cannot give you a green light for finalization yet. It is just taking so much longer than we thought. But we are on it and we hope to give you more details in the first quarter of 2018.

Thanks again for your support and patience! 

Best wishes from the Restube Team!

Update about the Ultralite Life Jacket and Merry Christmas

While certification for the RESTUBE Ultralite pfd are still ongoing the RESTUBE swim tube is already being used for many water activities around the world.

We were Safety Partner of the Deep Water Solo (climbing above water) event in the Port of Antwerp. The "Rocks in Town" climbers trusted in Restube when falling in the water.

Mermaid swimming is becoming very popular - mostly girls and women make their dream of swimming like a mermaid come true. Mermaid Loreley from Japan is relying on her Restube and even showed it off on Japanese TV!

 We keep pushing for more freedom & water safety!
