The WOWSA writes "Lifeguards, divers, kayakers, paddle boarders, safety boats, tow floats, Swim Angels, rest pontoons…the open water swimming community has developed a comprehensive safety net for its participants over the decades. But Mark Caron and the team at WAVE Drowning Detection Systems have significantly widened the safety net with a reliable, simple, easy-to-set up, easy-to-use anywhere systems for wide scale adoption in lake, sea, bay and ocean swims. The WAVE alert is set off if a swimmer has been submerged for too long, so that quick lifesaving intervention is started. For augmenting current open water safety systems with simplicity and reliable technology, for dramatically changing the aquatic safety profile with a simple tracker that is attached to swimmers’ goggles and immediately alerts safety personnel if a swimmer goes underwater too long, and for developing a system that can be implemented at any open water venue, WAVE Drowning Detection Systems by Mark Caron is a worthy nominee for the 2019 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year.
