Abstract
With the rapid development of modern society, a series of social problems in population, resources, environment, public health and other aspects get acute increasingly. When major natural disasters, safety incidents and unexpected public health events occur, goods transport efficiency will directly affect the disaster rescue of emergency or sudden public events. Based on the current widespread use of the incompressible polyethylene foam jacket of big size [1], we adopt this new type of shape memory polyurethane material [2] to replace the original filler material of the jacket, greatly decreasing the transport and storage resources of life vest .And it can be triggered by electric heating plate quickly and be put into use efficiently .The most remarkable thing is, however, the new material of our life vest can be recycled after using. In the whole process, transport and storage resources waste is greatly reduced, and the utilization rate of the material is largely improved.
