¿POR QUÉ MI INSTALACIÓN UTILIZA WAVE?

Aunque su instalación cuenta con personal dedicado y atento que vela por el bienestar de quienes están en el agua, el riesgo de ahogamiento siempre está presente.

 

La verdad es que cualquiera puede ahogarse, incluso si es un buen nadador, ha recibido lecciones de natación, es un gran deportista o está bajo una supervisión responsable.

 

Su instalación ha implementado WAVE como precaución adicional porque creen firmemente que la seguridad de su hijo es la máxima prioridad cuando está bajo su cuidado.

¿QUÉ HACE WAVE?

WAVE trabaja en segundo plano mientras los socorristas vigilan diligentemente a los nadadores, como siempre lo hacen.

El sistema monitorea a los nadadores en tiempo real y determina con precisión cuánto tiempo la cara de cada nadador está completamente sumergida y, por lo tanto, no puede respirar.

 

Si algún nadador ha estado bajo el agua durante un período de tiempo peligroso, WAVE alerta inmediatamente al personal acuático para que puedan investigar e intervenir rápidamente si es necesario.

CÓMO FUNCIONA WAVE

"MI HIJA SE HA Ahogado A 8 PIES DE UN SALVAVIDAS HACE MÁS DE 25 AÑOS. SI ESTA TECNOLOGÍA ESTUVIERA HOY COMO ESTÁ AQUÍ, MI HIJA TAMBIÉN ESTARÍA AQUÍ HOY".

- RICK KAUFMAN, PADRE, ANFITRIÓN DEL PODCAST DEL GUERRERO QUE SE Ahoga

 

¿COMO FUNCIONA?

A cada nadador se le proporciona un dispositivo portátil que puede ser un cómodo auricular llamado Tracker o un simple par de clips que se adhieren a la mayoría de los estilos de gafas. Los no nadadores usan una pequeña etiqueta de seguridad llamada ToddleTags.  

Los rastreadores son muy fáciles y cómodos de usar. Los hemos probado en miles de nadadores y la mayoría olvida que los están usando después de solo unos minutos. 

Una instalación habilitada para WAVE brinda el más alto nivel de atención en lo que respecta a la seguridad de sus seres queridos en el agua y en el agua.

Solo aquellas organizaciones que implementan nuestros sistemas y los usan de manera regular y adecuada están certificadas como habilitadas para WAVE.

Si su centro acuático, parque de la ciudad, campamento de verano o escuela no tiene WAVE, considere compartir WAVE con sus administradores y personal.

¿QUE NECESITO HACER?

Para que WAVE sea realmente eficaz, es muy importante que se asegure de que su hijo use un rastreador o un clip para gafas cuando esté en el agua *. También es igualmente importante que apoye los esfuerzos de su centro para hacer cumplir este nuevo protocolo.

Ayude a su hijo a comprender que se está utilizando WAVE para hacer que la natación sea lo más segura posible. Ellos seguirán tu ejemplo y descubrirán rápidamente que usar Trackers, Goggle Clips o ToddleTags les resultará tan familiar como usar un casco mientras andas en bicicleta.

Con su apoyo, WAVE hará que el tiempo de su hijo en el agua sea tan agradable como siempre, pero mucho más seguro.

* Para nadadores con necesidades especiales o circunstancias únicas que les impiden usar un rastreador o clips para gafas, comuníquese con  tu  director acuático para determinar el mejor curso de acción.

Frequently asked questions

HOW WAS WAVE DEVELOPED? HAS IT BEEN TESTED?


WAVE was developed over several years by a team of passionate product designers, engineers, aquatic safety experts, aquatic directors and many lifeguards just like you. To learn more about WAVE and the company behind it please click here.

The system uses proven patent and patent-pending technologies, and has been successfully tested and demonstrated at nearly a hundred pools and lakefronts across the country and on thousands of swimmers.




WE ALREADY HAVE LIFEGUARDS. WHY DO WE NEED WAVE?


Your facility's lifeguards are extremely well-trained and vigilant. But they're also human and like any human they can be distracted by noise, heat, humidity, glare, blind spots, distortion in the water and more.

A drowning can happen in just seconds. It is typically silent and without noticeable movement or actions by the victim. In reality it's nothing like what is depicted in movies or on TV. To most people a drowning victim simply looks like a person swimming or playing underwater. This makes it very difficult to detect, even for trained professionals.
WAVE works with facility lifeguards to monitor every swimmer in real time. Because every second counts, WAVE will help guards act on a possible event quickly at the first sign of danger.




WON'T WAVE MAKE GUARDS MORE COMPLACENT?


No, not at all. In fact we have found the opposite to be true: Most guards want to detect any potential event before WAVE does.

We have found that most guards feel less stress and pressure when WAVE is supporting their efforts to provide a safe swimming environment. We believe that having less stress means a healthier work environment which equates to more effective lifeguarding.




MY FAMILY IS GOOD SWIMMERS. DO THEY NEED TO USE THE WEARABLES?


Yes! Drowning can happen to everyone, even experienced swimmers and trained atheletes. That's why we highly encourage all swimmers to wear a WAVE Tracker or Goggle Clips.




MY SWIMMERS DON'T GO UNDER. DO THEY STILL NEED A WEARABLE?


Yes! Accidents, such as muscle cramps, slips, falls and head trauma can happen above water and impact a swimmer's safety. For this reason, it's critical that you strongly encourage anyone entering the water to always wear their WAVE Tracker or Goggle Clips.




DO SWIMMERS REALLY WEAR THOSE TRACKERS? DON'T THEY FALL OFF?


We can confidently state that most swimmers forget that they are wearing their Tracker after a minute or so. The Trackers are very lightweight and comfortable to wear, even with goggles or swim caps.

We've worked on the Tracker design for over two years, testing amost 100 versions to arrive at a design that stays on securely during most swimming activities yet can be easily removed when leaving the water or exchanging with other users.

Should a Tracker fall off, it will float, and most swimmers intuitively put the Tracker back on.
It's that simple to use and wear.




WON'T KIDS RESIST USING WEARABLE, OR INTENTIONALLY CREATE ALERTS?


We've tested our wearables on thousands of swimmers and have learned that most kids who are reluctant to wear Trackers or Goggle Clips quickly discover that after only a few minutes wearing one is no big deal. (In fact most swimmers forget they even have one on.)
Our take is that setting off the WAVE alert is no different from setting off a fire alarm and should be treated as such. For those pranksters that intentionally cause an alert, we have found that swift removal from the water corrects that behavior quickly. Lastly, while it might be fun and exciting the first time to set off an alert, most kids will become bored quickly and look for other ways to get into trouble ;)




IS WAVE GOING TO REPLACE OR REDUCE THE NUMBER OF GUARDS WE HAVE?


No!

WAVE is not designed as a solution to replace responsible human supervision.

We strongly support the use of lifeguards and believe that every aquatic facility and location should have responsible vigilant supervision present at all times whether they deploy WAVE or not.




ARE THE WEARABLES SAFE?


Yes, very safe. Trackers and Google Clips use very low-power radios that transmit for extremely short durations that last less than the blink of an eye. They are much less powerful than a typical pair of wireless headphones or headsets. For some insightful information about the practical impact of wireless communications on our health, please click here.




DOES SHARING TRACKERS INCREASE THE CHANCES OF LICE? WHAT ABOUT COVID-19?


Our wearables are made with materials designed to deter their growth. For best protection, we recommend that each swimmer wear their own personal Tracker. However, for those facilities that prefer to share wearables, like most shared athletic products, regular cleanings will help to reduce risk. Also, the chlorinated water common to most pools does a very effective job at reducing bacteria and other germs, including coronavirus. Concerning lice, the Harvard School of Public Health stated: “Shared helmets and headphones in schools or recreational settings may rarely and transiently harbor an occasional louse or nit; the effort necessary to effectively inspect and clean these devices, however, is not likely warranted.”




OUR FACILITY'S POOL IS CLEAR WATER. WHY DO WE NEED WAVE?


Being able to see swimmers underwater is not the same as knowing if they are at risk.

Most drowning victims simply look like someone playing or relaxing below the surface. In fact drownings have occurred with other swimmers and lifeguards right next to the victim.

Also while your facility's water may be clear, lifeguards can be challenged by glare and distortion which can completely obscure a submerged body.

Having WAVE used at your facililty means that the risk of a potential event being missed is dramatically reduced. That's peace of mind for you, your children and the facility.
