Adult Buoyancy Aid
An adult buoyancy aid is a type of personal flotation device designed to help an adult stay afloat in water. It is typically made of foam and is worn around the chest and back, with adjustable straps to ensure a secure fit.
Buoyancy aids are not designed to turn an unconscious person face-up in the water, so they should not be used as a substitute for a life jacket. However, they can be useful for activities such as kayaking, paddleboarding, and sailing, where the wearer is expected to be conscious and able to swim.
When choosing an adult buoyancy aid, it is important to look for one that is approved by relevant safety standards and fits properly. A properly fitting buoyancy aid should be snug but not too tight, and it should allow for full range of motion in the arms and shoulders.
