Title
(EN) SAFETY DEVICE FOR UNDERWATER DIVERS
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE SECURITE POUR PLONGEUR SOUS-MARIN
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to a safety device (10) which is intended for use by an underwater diver who is equipped with at least one compressed gas cylinder. The inventive device comprises an inflatable buoy (30) which is intended to be connected to the cylinder and which is driven to the surface when inflated. The device also comprises impervious telescopic means which are equipped with activatable signalling means (64, 66) and which are solidly connected to the inflatable buoy (30). In addition, the impervious telescopic means are designed to deploy when the inflatable buoy is inflated, such as to activate the signalling means (64, 66). The device (10) is detachably mounted to the underwater diver such as to be driven to the surface, essentially directly above the diver, when the inflatable buoy (30) is inflated and when the device is detached by the diver.
