Scuba/Snorkel Technology for Total Tracheotomy
Posted 02 January 2011 - 02:35 PM
My question: is anyone aware of any equipment that would allow him to dive/snorkel again? Sticking the snorkel through the throat hole will not work, as he could aspirate water into his lungs. He needs to be totally sealed. He has communicated with a doctor in Spain who has offered to try to experiment, but just wondered if there was anything else anyone was aware of. He enjoyed the glass bottom boat tour, but it wasn't the same as being underwater.

He has fought, won the battle, now he needs a way to live the life after the struggle.
The most important thing in life is not knowing everything, it's having the phone number of somebody who does!

Try asking about this on scuba board .com there is a section for divers with disabilities.
Another option might be to call DAN [divers alert network]
