If you fall off a moving vessel wearing a conventional harness lifejacket and lifeline, you will find yourself dragged along face down in the water. The innovative TeamO lifejacket has been developed to address this potentially serious situation.
Using TeamO's patented Backtow technology, it will turn the man-over-board over in to a face up seated position as they are towed backwards alongside the vessel. This keeps airways clear of the water and allows communication and immediate rescue by the crew, whilst also reducing the risk of injury during recovery.
During normal use, the jacket is worn as any other conventional lifejacket and has a soft loop for attaching a lifeline. However, in the event of a man-over-board situation, after manually inflating the jacket via the pull cord, the casualty then pulls the exposed release tab/handle to activate the Backtow function. This instantly releases the lifeline tether point from the front, allowing it to move to the back of the garment forming a webbing A-frame for backwards towing. This webbing A-frame is also a structural lifting point for recovery from the water.
