My Life Dedicated To
Since I was a child, I love diving. I have been diving in many places in the world.
However, I was never satisfied with underwater breathing systems that were on the market. For me, breathing equipment currently on the market is too large, heavy, cumbersome and many of them not safe enaugh.
My expertise in biomedical engineering and physiology helps me to invent and design innovative sensor solutions and based on that new type of life support equipment.
Oxygen Sensor Validation
Invention and prototyping of the oxygen sensor validation system now used in the Poseidon rebreathers.
EU-FP7 Marie Curie IEF project Lifeloop, adressing R&D of innovative gas sensing technologies for closed circuit breathing systems.
Near Eye Dive Computers
Invention and launch of the SEABEAR HUDC, the worldwide first mouthpiece mounted dive computer.
Solid state O2 sensors for rebreathers
R&D of the worldwide first solid state fluorescence O2 sensors for use in a closed circuit rebreather.
Wrist watch dive computer with color screen
Successful launch of the SEABEAR H3, the worldwide first watch-size dive computer with a color screen.
Mask Mounted Dive Computer
Invention of a wheel operated mask mounted dive computer
Acquisition of SEABEAR GmbH
SEABEAR GmbH gets acquired by Johnson Outdoors and I am manager for R&D of dive computers for Scubapro.
Founding of Oxygen Scientific
Oxygen Scientific GmbH is founded and an AWS PreSEED startup fund is granted for R&D of the GREENFLASH O2 sensor.
Intuitive operable dive computer
Method for operating a rebreather
Coupling provisions for diver propulsion vehicle
Rebreather Systems and Components
Support for diver propulsion vehicles
