---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of an underwater scuba diving system to make scuba diving a safe and tangible reality for individuals who have paraplegia. This system features swim fins worn on the wrist to enhance propulsion by the arms only, and a vest with chest-mounted controls that can be adjusted by the hands to change buoyancy and body trim to attain or maintain a horizontal, vertical, or angular position. There is a place on the back of the vest to mount a scuba tank and valves to connect the tank to the chest controls. The concept was developed by working hand-in-hand with divers with disabilities, conducting full-scale diving exhibitions, and carrying out mock-up tests. TITLE: Expanding Recreational Diving.
