A Device To Help End Childhood Drowning

*Sponsored post. Opinions are my own.

Childhood drowning happens all the time. I have friends that have suffered the loss of one of their kid’s because of drowning. It is SO sad and there are just no words for those sweet families who have had to suffer through such a horrible tragedy as a child drowning 🙁

Sure there are many ways to help prevent such a tragedy, but kids can be sneaky and when a parent or caregiver looks away for a second, that is when scary things can happen. Accidents suck and can be so sad and heartbreaking!

If you have a swimming pool at your house or your child visits a friend’s house with a pool or ANY place with water that your child can get into, then I thought you should all know about a new device, SEAL SwimSafe. This is A Device To Help End Childhood Drowning.

What Is the SEAL SwimSafe?

SEAL SwimSafe Aims to Put an End to Childhood Drowning. Unfortunately, the #1 cause of accidental death for kids 5 and under in the US, is drowning!

This wearable technology monitors kids while they swim and alerts parents and lifeguards of possible danger, like if your child is submerged in the water too long. The SEAL SwimSafe is already being implemented by YMCA’s for use at both their aquatics facilities and summer camps to help ensure their swimmers are safe.

How Does It Work?

SEAL SwimSafe consists of wearable necklace Bands and a Hub. The Hub can be placed anywhere around the pool or swim area and it will communicate with each band. It checks in several times a second, using a patented RF technology.

The hub will monitor up to 16 swimmers at once, the commercial system used by YMCA will monitor up to 60 swimmers at once! When a band is submerged longer than the safe time for that particular swimmer, the Hub and Band alarm with strobing lights and sounds, so any swimmer that is in need of help, is quickly identified.

The system also alarms if a swimmer leaves the coverage area, which helps keep swimmers safe and accounted for at YMCA’s, club pools, cruise lines and other facilities. Isn’t this a much-needed product to have, if you ever visit a pool or are around a big body of water? You can never be too safe, EVER.

Worth Mentioning

Technology like this doesn’t replace a lifeguard or a parent, but it does offer a failsafe to help ensure safety for all swimmers – from toddlers to kids just learning to swim to older swimmers too.

    It sounds great. Sadly this summer as every summer there are stories of children drowning.

  2. Very inventive.

  3. Richard Hicks says:

    What a wonderful device. It is going to save untold number of lives

  4. cheryl larimer says:

    My only concern is that parents might depend too much on it When our grandkids are in the water we are with them every moment.

  5. Mike S. says:

    Good idea, but I’m not sure how well putting an electronic collar on your kids before tossing them into the pool would work. I’m not a water person though, so I don’t suppose it matters one lick what I think.

  6. tiffany dayton says:

    If it will help save kids lives , whatever the cost , It should be used.

  7. Regina Wright says:

    Interesting. I think its a good idea. Like the concept. I would just worry if it would ever malfunction while wearing?

  8. Melissa Storms says:

    I think this is a great product. I was always a nervous wreck when I brought my son to our local pool or lake when he was younger. He was the type to jump first and i definitely helicoptered him when swimming. A device like this probably would have given a little piece of mind on those days.

  9. Natalie says:

    I once knew of a young girl who nearly died from drowning cause she did not know how to swim. This device is a life saver!

  10. Christine Rhyne Johnson says:

    I’d like to hear more drowning expert feedback on the product. It sounds like a good technology.

  11. vickie couturier says:

  12. Trish F says:

    What a great and useful product. I grew up with a pool and some 45 years later my parents pool is still being used. This would be great to have around when the little ones are present. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

  13. Julie Waldron says:

    This is a great thing to have!

  14. Michelle Richardson says:

    What a great life saving invention!

  15. Natalie A. says:

    I think this is a terrific idea!!! I have two daughters (3 and 10) and although I had my oldest swimming by age 2 1/2 my youngest is a slow learner. Having a device like this can really put my mind to ease because to be honest… I don’t really even trust floaties!

  16. Sarah Hayes says:

    wow this is really neat. I think we should have these at all the area pools

  17. Rose Reeder says:

    My brother drowned so I think this is amazing.

  19. Heather G. says:

    This should be required for every person with a child and a pool. Genius idea!
