Divers Alert Network (DAN) is constantly developing new research methods to enhance diver safety, and at the GO Diving Show this weekend, they will be discussing a new way of getting dive data – from the actual diver underwater.
With this new technology, DAN can read vital signs, positioning, depth, and more, collecting data and sharing it via telemedicine. The diver will transmit the info via bluetooth to a beacon on the surface.
DAN Europe's Chantelle Taylor-Newman will be on the Main Stage immediately after Andy Torbet and Chris Jewell‘s stint (so around 12.15pm) to explain more about the new technology.
