Life jacket

A life jacket that automatically inflates when it lands in the water and does not limit mobility - suitable for persons who operate a wheelchair

The user wears the life jacket when he drives or rides in a motorboat. The vest has a cartridge that automatically inflates the vest if the person lands in the water.

Authors comments
The life jacket does not limit mobility since it is very small as long as it is not inflated. It also provides better protection than an "ordinary" life jacket since it has higher buoyancy and turns the user over so the user floats on his back.
