Dr. Peter Germonpré of the Centre for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy of Brussels (Belgium) and Pr. Costantino Balestra published an article in Diving and Hyperbaric Medecine journal describing their experience with the O’Dive sensor during a 12-day cruise.

Since the first prototypes of the O’Dive sensor, we have always given particular importance to the various feedback from our users. Indeed, this feedback is crucial in order to be able to respond with ever greater precision and performance to your needs.
Nearly two years after the O’Dive sensor was launched on the market, the technology and its application continue to evolve permanently to push the user experience and safety even further.
In this article, Dr. Germonpré, Pr. Balestra and their team provide us with a very good feedback, highlighting in particular:
- the ease of use of the sensor
- the diver acceptance
- the dive behaviour modification in response to the O’Dive data
It concludes as follows:
“The O’Dive system may contribute to increasing dive safety by making divers immediately aware of the potential consequences of certain types of diving behaviour. It was noted that this type of monitoring either reinforced divers in their safe diving habits or incited them to modify their dive planning. Whether this is a lasting effect is not known.“
