Spearfactor #035: Philip Maechler, Inventor of the Sens07vest
In this episode I speak with Swiss inventor Philip Maechler from Provitatec. We discussed the invention of the Sens07vest recovery device design to rescue blackout divers. The Sens07vest is a fully automatic and electronic emergency floating device designed to get freedivers and spearfishers back to the surface in case the diver is too long or too deep underwater - or if a shallow water blackout is detected. The Sens07vest turns an unconscious person on his back to keep his airways clear. Philip goes over his inspiration for the product and the developmental process from the first prototype to what it is now. He also covers how the vest functions, and the similarities and differences between previous models of this device. Philip also gave Spearfactor listeners a 10% discount on the vest itself which was already almost half of the freediving Recovery vest developed by legendary diver Terry Maas.
