Dan Sense

The Dive Sense project proposes very small devices that the diver brings with him during the dive capable of recording with extreme precision the variations in depth, the speed of descent and ascent, the time spent at the various altitudes reached, the temperature of the water, the position of the body in the water and the geolocation of the subject.

In the standard version, Dive Sense allows, upon arrival on the surface of the diver, the display of all data relating to the dive on a smartphone APP for immediate feedback on the activity carried out. The system provides geolocation information and supports the scope provides specific information (freediving or scuba).

In the field of scuba diving, for example, information on the decompression risk is received with advanced models that integrate the information of the dive profile with the data of the DAN Data Base of both the subject and the rest of the diving community (about 100,000 dives), thus allowing an in-depth and personalized risk calculation.

The system can also integrate very specific patient information such as the analysis of some genetic variants if the Genofit-dive test was performed or more simply its anthropometric characteristics, previous pathologies and drug therapies.

In the freediving sector, very advanced information is received on the risk of pathologies related to this discipline (Pulmonary edema, Taravana) but also a useful service that by recording the training sessions allows the creation of a detailed log-book providing useful information for a more accurate planning of the workloads to be faced over time in a discipline where today, precisely due to the difficulties associated with carrying out the discipline in water, there are no accurate planning systems as is the case now in any other sport.


Dive Sense is above all useful for your safety, the application in fact sends information in real time to a data collection center which can generate an emergency alert in the case of parameters considered dangerous but above all it allows, in the event of an accident, to have provision of the DAN emergency central data essential for the management of the emergency itself as well as the geo-localization of the diver allowing better management of the evacuation plan in remote environments.

Three main advantages and innovations related to the real-time registration and dispatch of the recorded data:

  1. Real time comparison with the data of the subject recorded in other experiences and with the data of other subjects thus allowing an analysis and a type of feed-back unique in its kind
  2. The data sent in real time to the DAN Europe operations center can be used in the event of an accident for the management of emergencies.
  3. The recorded data represents a unique material for scientific purposes
