Swimming pool areas pose all sorts of dangers to young children. UK-based company Dolphin Alarms aims to eliminate the most dreaded of those dangers, accidental drowning, with its patented alarm system.

The Dolphin Aquasonic Swimming Pool Alarm system is designed for non-swimmers and infants who could easily escape the attention of their parents or guardians and end up in the water. The child’s ankle is strapped with a simple bracelet-like device that triggers an alarm when it makes contact with water.

Product development has seen investment of £120,000 to-date. Dolphin Alarms worked with technology specialists at Newcastle University’s Underwater Communications research department who refined the system to completion. No other pool alarm system offers all three of the following features:

-Alarm signalled instantaneously when a non-swimmer enters the water

-Alarm signalled when the pool is in use by others (rival systems rely on waves and therefore anyone using the swimming pool can trigger the alarm)

-Works in both salt water and fresh/chlorinated water

With research and development already completed, the company requires investment to begin production and marketing of the system.
