1st sensor controlled safety device for swimmers.
swimming is my sport,
the pool is my home,
the water is my element.
where it works
when you dive in,
all the noise disappears,
all that’s left is the water.
PLOOTA is the best solution to return to home safely.
My name is Alex Fatseas. I´m the owner of Chania surf club a surf school in Crete. I´m also a firefighter and I do a lot of activities in the water like paddle boarding. I´m a new father; I have a little boy so I have to find a new solution for safety in the water. All the life jackets are big and difficult to use in the water so PLOOTA is the best solution for that and is also the solution for me to return to home safely.
I wanted to invest in something that I knew could protect my children.
My name is Teneal Breitenstein and I have 6 children. The older ones are good swimmers but my 4 younger children absolutely need something just for my piece of mind, for my comfort so that I don’t have to worry about them when they´re swimming. You´re constantly keeping your eyes on the kids, especially around water, because you don’t want anything to happen to them. That would be devastating. I want to be able to go on vacation and go to a SPA and let my kids swim without having to worry if they´re going to be safe, and I know that with the PLOOTA, they have it; they´re safe. I don’t have to worry about them. I can go and I can relax and I can enjoy myself and my kids can swim without being constantly supervised.
PLOOTA is so lightweight and fits perfectly around your neck.
I am since 20 years a career firefighter for the United States Navy. I´m a father of two and I´ve taken up some more hobbies like rock climbing, spearfishing, kite surfing and paddleboarding. PLOOTA is so lightweight and fits perfectly around your neck. This great invention here senses when you are under water for more than 30 seconds, it’s easy to take apart, it´s easy to activate. All the other products that are out there don’t offer you the freedom to move around.
Cool piece of engineering and so lightweight!
During my vacation in South Africa my sister and I went to San Lucia and the wonderful beach to enjoy the sunshine and the warm Indian Ocean. I´m a good swimmer but I was caught by rip currents and pulled out into the open sea. My stepfather jumped into the waves to save us not aware of the danger and was trapped to. I thought we´ll never make it back to the shore. Totally exhausted and after minutes of pure fear we finally made it. When I saw PLOOTA the first time I thought: This is it. Finally something that really help you when you´re out there on your own. Cool piece of engineering and so lightweight!! You don’t even notice it when you swim!!!
PLOOTA is the helmet of water sports. It is the most innovative device for water sports that I have seen in a long time!
I am really excited about PLOOTA. It has a perfect fit and is really comfortable to wear. So all swimming styles are easy to swim – butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, crawl. You don’t even notice it`s on your neck, because it is very lightweight. I tested PLOOTA – what happens when it activates if you are underwater really long? It releases quite quickly, but not in a way that you think your head or ears are going to fly off. What impressed me the most was the stabilization of the head and that it easily carried my bodyweight even if I let all the air out of my lungs. So I can just say: PLOOTA helps people to survive! On high seas, on the river, everywhere and that’s why it is an absolute added value and a great product.
