Chicago-based Diveheart has recently announced the launch of their new website and training materials aimed at training adaptive divers worldwide. We met with Diveheart founder and President Jim Elliott at the 2014 DEMA show, where he told us more about these new developments:


Diveheart was founded in 2001 with a mission to allow people with a wide range of disabilities to explore the underwater world, using techniques specifically designed to help them explore the underwater environment. Along the way, Diveheart has found that scuba diving has not only deeply inspired and opened up a world of possibilities to disabled people, but also has proven medical benefits, especially to those with chronic pain.
