PLOOTA

are a group of innovators reinventing the life-jacket. Designed for all water based activity, the device fastens around the neck and attaches two tiny, inflatable floatation tanks that are activated by depressing the tank’s end.

The device provides a new freedom for the body while providing peace of mind for the user. It is already attracting plaudits from sports people involved in surfing, paddle boarding and snorkelling.

History

Captain Ward, an RNLI inspector in the UK, is widely credited with the invention of the forerunner of the modern lifejacket, who created a cork vest to be worn by lifeboat crews for both weather protection and buoyancy.
