Product Testing

During the testing of Safeback SBX, we have conducted field tests and participated in independent research in the following areas:

Independent Medical Trial: Full Burial Testing

Eurac Research has conducted an independent medical trial of Safeback SBX to explore the extent to which the system can extend delay suffocation during burial.

Snow Burial Simulations

To confirm the findings of our modeled research, we created burial simulations to test iterations of our system and measure the actual airflow it generated in the snow.

Practical Field Testing

The system has been developed to withstand harsh conditions and tough use, in temperatures down to -30 degrees - requiring rigorous testing of all components individually, and as a system.

Backpacks with Safeback SBX

Safeback SBX

Designed to provide breathable air to an avalanche victim under the snow, extending their potential survival window.
