No 2. Chris Fox: 9th Life. – Silver Prize
9th Life. is an innovative personal flotation device designed for water sport participants to overcome their perceived barriers to wearing a life jacket. These include mobility, comfort, ease of swimming and sports image. 9th Life. is a wetsuit top with a hidden inflatable life jacket that bursts open, when required, exposing a fully functional PFD level 150 life jacket. It is activated through the innovative use of a pulse oximeter which monitors the user’s risk of drowning via their oxygen levels and when in danger automatically inflates bringing the user to a safe position and signals for help via GPS.
