Raft-chair for households on floodplains

Most consumer flood products are inadequate and costly, meaning communities in flood prone areas remain in significant danger of drowning or becoming stranded.

An indoor chair that transforms quickly into a lightweight, puncture-proof life raft with onboard first aid kit and paddle. Noah is a user-tested design, electrically insulated and incorporating handles to grip onto, attach a cord to, or link multiple rafts together. It provides users with mobility to reach safer areas during a flood and assists rescuers who might otherwise not be able to reach victims.
