Until now, our asthmatic friends were left on the docks, holding their metered dose inhalers, while the rest of us frolicked around in the deep blue sea. Insert Medidive’s asthmatic snorkeling and scuba gear. No longer will your hypersensitive bronchi prevent you from swimming with the dolphins.
The Worlds first snorkel designed for Asthmatics! Giving you the ability to gain immediate and intuitive access to your medication while snorkeling.
The Asthma Freedom Snorkel enables an asthmatic to simply insert their Metered Dose Inhaler canister (Puffer canister) into the body of the snorkel. This allows immediate, intuitive dispensing of their medication on demand, should it be required in the aquatic environment. The same dose of medication, as normally supplied when used as a standard asthma puffer is delivered into the airflow delivery pathway of the snorkel and is then inhaled by the user. When the snorkelling activity has concluded the user can simply extract their Metered Dose Inhaler canister and reinsert it into their standard puffer
After many years in the dive industry, I have seen far too many people miss out on exploring the wonders of the underwater world due to their asthma. The Asthma Freedom Snorkel (AFS) will now enable you to participate with the confidence that should you need your reliever medications at the onset of an asthma attack, it’s available to you at the press of a button.
I do hope you take this opportunity to explore new frontiers and discover new levels of confidence in the aquatic environment. Remember to always play safe, stay within your limits, and have fun.
