NOT A SUPERHERO?
WAVE GETS YOU CLOSER TO BEING ONE.
Even though you are highly vigilant and responsible when watching over the welfare of those in water, the risk of drowning is always present.
The truth is that anyone can drown, even if they are good swimmers, had swim lessons, are great athletes, or under your watchful eye. It happens quietly, takes just seconds, and even a minor distraction can prevent you from seeing it in time.
Easy to use, WAVE provides you with a powerful tool to enhance your efforts to keep your swimmers safe.
"IT'S LIKE HAVING A DEPUTY LIFEGUARD LETTING US KNOW WHEN SOMEONE'S UNDER TOO LONG"
– DAVID MCCLANATHAN | LIFEGUARD | HAGERSTOWN YMCA
WHAT DOES WAVE DO?
IT HAS YOUR BACK
WAVE works quietly while you watch over your swimmers, just as you always do.
The system uses lightweight wearables to monitor swimmers in real time and accurately determines how long each swimmer's face is fully submerged and therefore unable to breathe.
If a swimmer has been underwater for an extended period of time and goes unnoticed, WAVE immediately notifies you by vibrating your Staff Bracelet and system-wide audiovisual alerts.
For facilities that are deploying our Location Indicators, the devices will flash to help you locate the swimmer in question.
This means that a missed event is addressed well before it has time to escalate into an emergency.
"A HUGE HELP, A SAFETY NET FOR OUR GUARDS"
– ERIC LARA | HEAD LIFEGUARD | YMCA OF AUSTIN
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?
SIMPLE: WHAT YOU'VE ALWAYS DONE.
You watch over your swimmers as you normally do while wearing a Staff Bracelet. The Bracelets are comfortable, adjustable and waterproof.
If the Bracelet vibrates immediately investigate your scan area and intervene if necessary.
Otherwise, for WAVE to be effective it will be important for you to make sure that all of your swimmers wear their Trackers or Goggle Clips*.
* Exclusions may exist for swimmers with special needs or unique circumstances that prevents wearing a Tracker or Goggle Clips. Discuss these situations with your aquatic director to determine a best course of action.
WE'VE KEPT IT EASY
SO YOU CAN KEEP THEM SAFE
We know you've got enough responsibility, so we've designed our wearables to start working as soon as they're put on. There's no buttons or need to recharge them.
Our storage systems make the retrieval and return of wearables so easy and intuitive that even your younger swimmers won't need your supervision.
Designs subject to change.
"THE GUARDS LOVE IT."
–MIKE HALLEY | PROGRAM DIRECTOR | BOYS & GIRLS CLUB NEWBURGH, NY
WAVE DOESN'T JUST PROTECT YOUR SWIMMERS
IT PROTECTS YOU TOO
