The Shark Shield FREEDOM7 is a compact, versatile and light weight personal shark deterrent system which allows you to explore and enjoy the oceans without fear. It's designed for all water sports including, swimming, spear fishing, bodyboarding and snorkelling and is the preferred product for scuba divers. The Shark Shield FREEDOM7 is fitted to the ankle region with the supplied neoprene and Velcro pouch.
The shark shield unit incorporates a velcro pouch, that is attached to the ankle region and 2.2m flexible mesh antenna. Once the antenna is submerged in salt water the electrodes emit the protective field.
The FREEDOM7 antenna has been designed to cause minimum of water resistance and drag on the user.
Shark Shield's unique wave form elliptical field only affects free swimming sharks and to a minor degree rays and skates. The field generated by the Shark Shield is detected by the shark through its sensory receptors known as Ampullae of Lorenzini, situated on the snout of all predatory sharks. The unique and unfamiliar pulsing sensation emitted by the Shark Shield does not replicate that given off by a fish and does not attract sharks to an area. Shark Shield allows you to hunt, photograph or just swim with all other marine animals roaming freely in their ocean settings.
