A first response throw-out device to speedily capture someone immersed in water, in the same quick way that a lifebuoy would be thrown out.

 QUIKSLING may come to be regarded as the most significant advance ever in aiding the quick recovery of in-water casualties.

 Fast recovery is absolutely critical, especially in sub-zero temperatures with the prevalent risk of hypothermia.

 Throws out like a life ring and the rescuer activates the chest sling with a sharp tug on the rope.  Deceptively simple in both appearance and use, it will work in all weather and sea conditions.  QUIKSLING’s frame is easily lifted over a rescued person, with the wide open loop allowing for easy entry in the roughest seas and an inflated lifejacket will not impede that entry.

 Once inside the hollow, the casualty is inside two slings:  a chest sling detachably mounted to a leg sling.  Without prompting, the casualty’s arms rise up and drape out over the frame, leaving the way clear for the rescuer to tug the tension-activated chest sling inwards from its detachable mountings and capture the casualty under the armpits.

The frame provides flotation while the casualty is being drawn closer to the rescuer and the double sling recovery ensures a safe low ‘deckchair’ posture for the hoist aboard.  Prior to lifting out, the frame needs to be plunged under water but the rigid shape of the frame means this is easy to achieve.  This will then form support for the legs and ensure a comfortable and level lift from the water.

This is one of the safest postures for MOB recovery to avoid cardiac problems and is recommended in a new SOLAS regulation that requires ship specific plans and procedures to be in place for the recovery of persons from the water.
