About Us

Since our founding more than 30 years ago, Suspended Aquatic Mentor, Inc. has provided a wide selection of aquatic lifesaving and first aid related products to pools, lifeguards, and first-aid workers. We are proud to be an industry leader, and even prouder to say that our company and its products literally save lives every year. You may know about our company because of our printed catalog, which we've been sending out for twenty years. We now also offer all our products online, so purchasing safety, rescue and first-aid equipment from us is easier than ever. Our company is committed to constantly improving our various lines of products for the lifeguard, water safety and first-aid fields. We hold a number of patents in all three areas. Our best-known patented product is the ExoTube, which is the longest-lasting and most durable rescue tube to hit the market since the invention of the rescue tube 80 years ago. Our most recent patent is for our revolutionary Backboard Flotation Assist Device, which assists rescue workers in performing crucial head and neck stabilization work during water rescues. We believe it is the first, and certainly the best, device of its kind. We know that lifeguards and first-aid workers need to be prepared for any kind of emergency. That's why we sell training products like the Snyder Training Manikin as well as front-line products like biohazard kits and pocket resuscitation masks. We even keep our lifeguards safe from the sun with a full range of lifeguard umbrellas. We are also proud to sell a line of products designed to help individuals with disabilities enjoy the water. We sell three different models of swim lifts to help people get in and out of the pool, as well as other specialized products like the Suspended Aquatic Mentor, and wheelchairs specifically designed for use around the pool. We believe that everyone can benefit from time in the water, and no one should miss out - especially not because of a disability. Our products help thousands of disabled Americans enjoy the pool or engage in aquatic therapy. Since our founding in 1983, our goal has been to offer lifeguards and first-aid workers the best quality products and services available. We understand the dangers our customers face every day, and design all of our products with this in mind. When we design a new product, it is always a two-way process. We ask "Will this device help save a life, and will it also keep the rescue worker safe?" We always keep in mind that lifeguards and first-aid professionals need to be kept safe first, before using our products to assist others to safety. If you have questions or comments about any of our products, you may email us at, or call us at (888) 376-3335. Your call will be returned as soon as we're able. As we have since way back in 1983, we look forward to serving your aquatic, water safety, and first aid needs.
