Superfast Rescue Tube

The Rescue Tube is meant for the fishermen folk who brave the high seas every single day. As a part of their routine they are supposed to wear life vests but many ignore this as it causes restricted movements. Rescue Tube on the other hand is a simple latch-clasp that can be hooked to the clothes as a normal buckle. It doesn’t pose as an obstruction. During an emergency situation you simply tug at the lower clasp to inflate the tube instantaneously, maneuver it around your neck and it’s ready to be used!

If you ask me, I think this idea can be further refined if it has a clasp on the free-end, to secure it to your clothes. When you are in a desperate situation, I’m sure having free hands for swimming is better than restricting them to holding onto the tube.

    was wondering why the video did not show him inflating the 'rescue tube'.. then realised that i think he hasn't found a way to do so. a good design concept, something people would have done if it was scientifically possible. but apparently it's not. no wonder there's still lifejackets

      Read the explanation on the last image….it inflates automatically when device is pulled. That it is a poor video and poor presentation is correct.

        what i was referring to was that it isn't quite possible to fill a tube with CO2 when you are submerged in water (let alone 'instantly').. it will more likely fill with water instead. if i'm not wrong, life jackets have a way for you to blow air in. in that sense, you're write as well – he should have shown methods to manually inflate the tube.

          i’m sorry but why won’t it be able to inflate when submerged? i thought this would kinda work in the same way as those bicycle tire inflators work…you know with the co2 capsules. and how about those emergency rafts/lifeboats in planes…don’t they inflate in exactly the same way.

  • I'd love to see the rescue device inflating. Could you record it, upload the video and attach it to the post so we can all watch how this amazing thing works?

    I really doubt it could hold your head above the water, especially if your'e in the ocean.

    interesting design, however alot of man overboard situations ( commercial fishing vessels in particular ) occur because the user is injured, knocked out from a heavy wave etc. Since this design requires the user to be alert, it does not help with this scenario. Which may give the user a false sense of security. Cannot see how this improves upon 'inflates when hits water' designs.
