Healthways “Deluxe” Scuba #4170
1960-1962 Deluxe Scuba Healthways.“The original double-hose regulator from Healthways had a really unique name – it was called SCUBA.” “Then they came out a little later with an improved version they called the SCUBA Deluxe”.
Healthways also had among the first single hose regulators. One, uniquely, had a J-valve built into the regulator. It retailed for $69.95 in their 1963 catalog. Additionally, they had a regulator with a feature known as a “sonic reserve”. When the tank pressure got down to 300psi, it would “rap” (shudder) when you inhaled.
