Cruickshank Intellectual Property Attorneys’ High Achieving Merit Award winner

HydroFLOcean

The Cruickshank Intellectual Property Attorneys’ High Achieving Merit Award of €5,000 went to ‘HydroFLOcean’ from CIT. The H-Flo is a new innovative water safety device that disengages a lanyard from a harness when submerged in water. The functional prototype was designed in response to the tragic death of two men on Thomond Bridge, Limerick last year when they were harnessed onto a platform that fell into the River Shannon. The H-Flo aims to prevent future tragedies like this one occurring. Cruickshank Intellectual Property Attorneys are also providing intellectual property consultancy and protection for all the finalists.
