Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0162588A1] The invention concerns a device forming a snorkel mouthpiece or diving regulator, adapted to be engaged in a diver's or swimmer's mouth and comprising a body (20) provided with an air intake and extended by two lateral branches (21) each provided with a bite wing tab (22), and at least a transducer buzzer arranged in one of the branches (21) and comprising a piezoelectric membrane (3, 4). The invention is characterised in that each transducer vibrator comprises a peripheral weight (6) secured on the periphery of the piezoelectric membrane (3, 4) and means (5, 6) transmitting, towards the diver's or swimmer's teeth, vibrations of said membrane. Moreover, each transducer vibrator is arranged in the branch (21) such that the piezoelectric membrane (3, 4) is totally isolated from outside atmosphere, and the transmission means (5, 30) form a contact interface with the teeth at the bite wing tab (22).
