DIVING. A tragic bus accident in central Stockholm after
the war raised the concern that divers could not be
quickly deployed to the crash site. The government asked
AGA (see History) if they
could provide a rapid deployment diving device for search

Worlds first underwater breathing apparatus for search
and rescue was presented to the Swedish authorities.
The device, commonly referred
to as the ‘iron bed’ (because of the shape
of the carrying frame), featured a breathing valve with
inhalation and exhalation in the same diaphragm. The

latest generation of Interspiro SCUBA equipment – DIVATOR – is
still the preferred choice for professional divers

both have extremely high flow capacity and are designed
to ensures that
the pressure leading to the breathing valve is stable
not affected by pressure variations
in the air supply or by the depth of the dive.
Interspiro is leading the

The Interspiro diving philosophy
is a system philosophy. All parts of the breathing circuit
– from the full-face mask all the way up to the
last thread on the DP1 Surface
Supply – are tightly integrated. The reason
is simple and obvious, to obtain the highest possible
safety level for professional divers.
