For those that enjoy diving, and who spend time on live-aboards often in remote locations that provide great diving, the presence of a Hyperlite hyperbaric stretcher on board brings peace of mind to all those aboard participating in the sport. When things go wrong, the benefit of early recompression greatly reduces the likelihood of more severe sickness leading to possible permanent disabilities. When close to civilization, the casualty can then be taken to a hyperbaric chamber by helicopter or other transport, already receiving the therapy that he or she would probably only receive a considerable time later. With diving accidents, the time till re-compression is of the essence. Should luxury live aboards be without such an important amenity?
