Oceanic Safety Systems LLC was formed for the sole purpose of developing and producing a vest to be worn by freedivers (breath-hold divers.) It is designed to bring the diver to the surface if he stays longer than his trigger time, or dives deeper than his trigger depth. The Freedivers Recovery Vest ( FRV) brings the diver to the surface briskly and positions him in a head-up position, ideal for rescue breathing and resuscitation.
Our mission is to provide freedivers with a reliable recovery system, which when properly used will help reduce freediver injury and death because of freediver blackout. We subscribe to the physician's credo, "First do no harm." With this in mind, we will carefully review the major components of the Freediver's Recovery Vest, the logic for its function and the mechanical elements that provide that function. While we feel that the need for this product is compelling, we will not rush to market without assuring that we have made every effort to make the freediver's recovery vest as safe as possible in an inherently unsafe sport. We will employ extensive prototype and beta testing using nationally and internationally known experts in freediving. We will use high-quality components and employ aircraft-like redundancy in the mechanical parts we feel are most prone to malfunction.
