Sail-World.com : Sea Scoopa break through with Royal Australian Navy
Sea Scoopa break through with Royal Australian Navy

'Seascoopa'    .

SOS Marine has announced this week that as a result of recent testing, man overboard system Sea Scoopa and the SeaScoopa stretcher have been allocated NATO Stock Numbers by the Royal Australian Navy.

Sea Scoopa, originally the brain child of Sydney intensive care specialist Bob Wright, is a lightweight and portable rescue device which solves the very difficult and greatly underestimated problem of capturing and hoisting a 'Man Overboard' (MOB) to safety.


It offers a new generation approach which both mechanically and medically facilitates the safe and effective retrieval of a MOB.

This multi-purpose rescue system reduces the risk of rescuer back injury and also reduces the threat of the person overboard limb entrapment in large apertures that can increase the possibility of drowning.
Importantly, the design also incorporates a stretcher to facilitate the movement of the victim on board the vessel and subsequent transfer.

The Sea Scoopa is manufactured by SOS Marine, an Australian manufacturing company that designs specialised lifejackets and safety equipment for the armed forces, police and emergency services.

SOS supplies nine naval forces worldwide with safety equipment.

How does Sea Scoopa work?

Mechanically -through a thoroughly refined and tested capture and collection process, the safety of the rescuers is maintained, lifting effort is halved and potentially 'life threatening time' is kept to a minimum.

Medically-the Sea Scoopa takes unparalleled care of the MOB during the rescue process particularly where the victim has suffered unknown and possibly life threatening injuries. The correct handling technique, automatically replicated during each retrieval, is a vital component of the Sea Scoopa. An inbuilt stretcher protects the victim and allows safe post-rescue handling whilst minimising further injury.

Since the product was invented by Bob Wright it has been refined by engineers and tested by mariners. Extensive testing has shown that this is the most efficient device for the speedy and safe recovery of a MOB.
