RESTUBE Lifeguard


For professional Lifeguards to help rescue others 

Revolutionary self-inflating Restube Lifeguard rescue buoy.

Developed in cooperation with the SLRG (Swiss Lifeguard Association), German lifeguards (Wasserwacht), and RLNI (UK Royal National Lifeboat Institution) for professional use of lifeguards by German engineers and made with the highest quality materials - the Restube Lifeguard rescue buoy is an essential part of any lifeguard's rescue gear.

Inflates within seconds with one pull of a trigger wire (doubles as a safety whistle) using a replaceable CO2 cartridge (1 included), the RESTUBE can also be inflated via a mouthpiece.

Once inflated, the signal-yellow RESTUBE Lifeguard rescue buoy has a buoyancy of 75N (approx. 7kg), allowing resting and easily supporting of the victim's head above water. The Restube Lifeguard buoy has a C-shape design featuring a safety lanyard to easily attach the buoy to the victim and a high visibility reflector.

The RESTUBE is extremely compact, it is stowed away in its robust case until use - the case can be carried horizontally or vertically around the hip using the supplied interchangeable belt (featuring a quick release buckle).

RESTUBE Lifeguard is only suitable for trained professional lifeguards. If you have any questions or ideas feel free to contact us: 

RESTUBE Lifeguard has been tested and approved by the SLRG (Swiss Life Saving Society).

The RESTUBE is NOT a Coast Guard approved life vest as it does not go over your head or wrap around you.  It will not help you if you are passed out.  It acts as a flotation swim buoy to rest on and easy to swim with.

Endorsed By Rescue Services Around the World

Australian Professional Ocean Lifeguard Association (APOLA)

"Career Professional Ocean Lifeguards assessed the effectiveness of the Restube and Restube Lifeguard and found that both units had sound applications. The Restube would be great as a personal flotation device, more than enough to assist self or possibly others out of a situation if required. [...]The ease of use and simplicity of the unit was outstanding."

Swiss Lifesaving Association (SLRG)

"The resulting end product is convincing and, consequently, the SLRG approves the Restube Lifeguard as official operating equipment"

Austrian Water Rescue (ÖWR)

"Positively, the Restube struck by its simple handling and easy activation. By bright yellow color, it is also clearly visible over long distance to go."

Rescue Italia

"The strength of Restube lies in its small size and can be easily carried while on duty. The buoy fully inflated has a thrust of 75N, which is over 7 kg of ascension. Placing the unsafe, or wounded, on the buoy helps him keep his head above water"

"If it only saves one life, the acquisition of the Restube Lifeguard has already paid off."
