TechFloat - Inflatable Rescue Device
NEW and Improved Techfloat Lift & Rescue DeviceThe TechFloat is a throwable, inflatable rescue device for all-season water and ice rescue that has incorporated lifting capability. This combination of features make the Techfloat a complete rescue and recovery device for multiple scenarios and platforms. Including but not limited to:
- Swift Water
- Still Water
- High Angle
- UAS/Drone Rescue
The TechFloat is worn with an over-the-shoulder strap, which connects the rescuer directly to the victim and leaves both hands free. The inflatable is removed from its valise, and easily thrown to the victim. The unit comes with 100 feet of highly durable floating line and has water-activated inflation. After activation, the victim places the inflated bladder around themselves, and the rescuer is free to retrieve the victim by means of the line attached between them.
UAS/Drone Rescue, Deliver underarm flotation device to victim at a distance
The Techfloat can be deployed to a distressed person-in-water from a distance using a drone. The inflatable is removed from the valise and attached to the drone, flown above and dropped to the victim. The underarm flotation device activates upon hitting the water and the victim can swim in. The floating line stays connected to the victim and the rescuer and is available in 100 ft. or 200 ft. lengths and is used to retrieve the victim.
