Autonomous Life Vest

The Revival Vest is a self-inflating life jacket that uses Footfalls and Heartbeats smart fabric technology to monitor respiration and physiological changes such as drowning. The fabric detects changes in circumference and stretch around the chest while the diver suppresses breathing. If the wearer blacks out, the body becomes limp and life vest is triggered to inflate and raise the body to the surface for rescue.
