The facts are astounding – according to WHO (World Health Organization) drowning is the 3rd leading cause of unintentional death on a global scale. For boaters, beach lovers and pool owners, this statistic is terrifying. But OneUp has created a self-inflating life preserver that may bring peace of mind as you boat, play at the beach and in your pool
A Self-Inflating Life Preserver
OneUp's self-inflating life preserver helps to reduce the terror that can come from falling overboard, or finding yourself in trouble at the beach.
This small, soft drink can shaped tube explodes into action once it comes into contact with the water. It self-inflates and is a one-size-fits-all life preserver. All it takes is one toss, and voilá, OneUp springs into action.
This is perfect for the adult who struggles to swim; the teen who loves to swim out beyond safety. It brings an extra sense of security when contemplating boating safety.
OneUp is providing an extra life approach to aquatic safety that enables rescuers and water enthusiasts alike the ability to save lives without the extra time required to activate a life preserver. OneUp's compact device provides an extra layer of safety in both salt and fresh water. Just toss the tube to a person in need of assistance, and it will self-inflate as soon as it comes in contact with the water.
Safety is a Toss Away
OneUp's self-inflating life preserver weighs in at 0.8 lbs and is 6.8″ long. It comes with a waterproof cover and a carabiner to attach the device to bags or belt loops. When you need OneUp, just simply throw or hand it to the victim.

How OneUp Works
OneUp was designed with speed and portability to enable quick and safe rescue of victims in an emergency situation. With a small salt pod and a CO2 sensor enclosed in its housing, when it comes into contact with water, the salt pod dissolves and activates the CO2 release, which in turn inflates the life preserver. From contact with water to full inflation is 2 seconds. OneUp is reusable following a 60-second reset. OneUp can hold up to 330 lbs.
