Possibilities with LifeBoard®

The LifeBoard® is needed on the Danish beaches to give beachgoers a flotation device at hand to rescue a distressed victim safe and in time before it is too late. LifeBoard® creates a new focus on civil life-saving on the beach. With this innovative product, we are solving a societal problem and reducing the number of drowning accidents.

The LifeBoard® has been validated and tested by users and TrygFonden Kystlivredning at their BølgeCamp 2019.

Set up on the beach

Full Setup High-profile beaches with high numbers of visitors where beachgoers will move further down the beach to avoid busy areas. This poses a greater risk to e.g. rip currents and difficult water conditions.

Customized setup Less visited beaches are often without lifeguards. The LifeBoard® is easy to mount on already existing tubes, as a replacement of rescue stations or on beach number signs. It gives the beach increased safety without larger actions

Extension of lifeguard tower 80% of lifesaving actions happen outside the lifeguard area (Respect for water'19)For larger safety coverage of the beach, the LifeBoard® can be as an extended to lifeguard towers during the summer period.
