KEY BENEFITS

  1. Delivers a wide open loop for easy entry in rough seas
  2. Inflated lifejacket does not impede entry
  3. Small diameter frame is easily flipped overhead for entry
  4. Once inside the hollow, the casualty is inside two slings: a chest sling detachably mounted to a leg sling (the flotation frame)
  5. Without prompting, the casualty’s arms rise up and drape out over the frame, leaving the way clear for the rescuer to tug the tension-activated chest sling inwards from its detachable mountings and capture the casualty under the armpits.
  6. The frame provides flotation while the casualty is being drawn closer to the rescuer
  7. The rigid shape of the frame is easily plunged and placed to form a leg support
  8. Double sling recovery ensures a safe “low deckchair” posture for the hoist aboard
