After years of development, finally the hoseless regulator has become a reality. Now your first stage and second stage regulators will no longer be connected by a hose, but rather by an ’invisible thread’!

"The system comprises a hoseless second stage and a box weighing approximately 0.5kg/1lb which has to be within 2m/6ft of the second stage. By means of an osmotic diffusion process which is currently being studied in more depth, the box delivers breathable gas directly to the second stage."
