Healthways Scubair Sonic
The Healthways Scubair Sonic and Scubair J were the forefathers of the early SCUBAPRO regulators, they were made of chrome-plated brass. This was the technology and brand from which the SCUBAPRO line stems. SCUBAPRO was in fact the trade name of the professional line of diving equipment that Healthways commisioned Gustav Dalla Valle and Dick Bonin to create. Soon after Healthways went bankrupt and Dalla Valle and Bonin bought the rights to the SCUBAPRO name and went on to create brand new equipment, thus a legendary brand was born in 1963.
