This underwater system by designer Emil Orman aims to make scuba diving a safe & tangible reality for those who suffer from paraplegia. The concept was developed by working hand-in-hand with disabled divers, conducting full-scale diving exhibitions, & carrying out mock-up tests. Buoyancy and body trim can be adjusted via the chest mounted control to assist the user into a horizontal, vertical, or angular position, increasing the freedom of movement & enhancing the overall experience.
