The Seal System is a wearable swimming monitor with anti-drowning capability that will be released. This is a good thing.
According to recent data form the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, every day about ten people die from unintentional drowning. Those that are most prone to this risk of drowning are children between the ages of 1 to 14 with those between the ages of 1 to 4 having the highest drowning rate.
The seal issues accurate and unmistaken warnings and alarms to lifeguard and parents so that they can overcome distractions to respond to a swimmer in distress before drowning or any medical complications arise.
The Seal System uses a SwimSafe technology that creates a virtual safety network that wirelessly connects the swimmers, life guards and parents through a compact, portable monitoring hub.
The seal band reports the swimmers status to the central hub, life guards’ and parents’ seal band continually from the unique electronic signature that is contained in every individual swimmer’s band. That makes it possible for many swimmers to be monitored simultaneously.
