Easily re-armed

Certification and testing

SWÖM™ is equipped with a high-resolution depth sensor that constantly measures the child’s
position in the water. If the child stays underwater for too long, the swimwear inflates and brings the
child back to the surface

The inflator contains harmless pressurized CO2 gas which is automatically released into the swimwear when triggered by the depth sensor
If your SWÖM™ has been inflated you can simply re-arm it by inserting a new electrical inflator filled with CO2 gas.
SWÖM™ swimwear is powered by a rechargeable battery that can provide 30+ hours of runtime.
SWÖM™ swimwear will be certified and tested to comply with the highest level of standards for personal protection equipment
The Swöm swimwear is designed with children in mind. We believe the product is best suited for children that have become acquainted with water and perhaps have already learned how to swim. At that point, they have typically stopped using permanently inflated products and are no longer wearing anything to keep them safe in the water.
We know from first-hand experience how quickly and silently a person can slip under the surface and drown. Moreover, drowning is a leading cause of death for young children, and our smart swimwear is on a mission to change that.
The inflator needs to be replaced after each inflation. For safety reasons, we recommend replacing the swimwear after ten inflations.
Initially we will offer sizes in fitting children between 100-160 cm tall (approx. 3-12 years).
The SWÖM swimwear has a built in depth sensor which constantly monitors the user in water. If the user is submerged too deep for too long the suit will automatically inflate.
If your swimwear has been inflated you can simply re-arm it by inserting a new inflator filled with CO2 gas.
You should change the inflator/CO2 cartridge every second year. If your swimwear has been inflated you should replace the inflator.
After each use thoroughly rinse the product in fresh water and hang to dry. You can also hand-wash the product using normal detergent. Do not machine wash, tumble dry or iron.
No, our swart swimwear provides bouncy on-demand only if it detects that the user was submerged for too long. Swöm is designed to protect your children when they are swimming and playing in the water, as opposed to a life-vest which aim to protect the user when they are outside of water. The inflation mechanism in the Swöm swimwear is triggered by the user being submerged for too long, as opposed to contact with water, which is common in inflatable life-vests.

What is SWÖM?

Swöm is created by a group of parents and engineers living in Denmark and Sweden who strongly felt the need to have a product that protects their kids in the water without hindering their ability to swim, move, and play.

Swöm is almost the word for Swim in Danish and we like both the connotation to the fact that people should be protected when they are swimming as well as the fact that we are proud of our Scandinavian heritage from both a design and safety perspective.
