DAN Medical Division
DAN is one of the world leaders in medical and scientific research on diving safety.
Since 1994, DAN Europe has been conducting several research projects on medicine and physiology in diving. The results obtained by our researchers have become a point of reference for the international medical diving community. Your membership helps us continue this important mission: research activity is fully funded by the subscription fees of DAN Europe members.
Emergency Medical Assistance
No matter what kind of diver you are, we’ve got you covered, with our tailor-made, annual insurance plans, valid all over the world.
Why is it so important?
24/7, Multilingual Diving Emergency Hotline
It’s a hotline fully dedicated to divers, managed by DAN’s medical network, handling over 5,500 emergency calls per year and offering timely assistance in case the unexpected happens.
Limitless Payment of Emergency Medical Transportation
Sending out a helicopter or speedboat to assist a diver in the middle of nowhere can bear considerable costs. DAN’s reliable service providers make the process quicker and more effective.
Payment of Emergency Medical Treatment, Hyperbaric Therapy and Hospitalisation
Treatment of dive injuries can be very expensive, especially abroad and when specialised care and hyperbaric therapy are required. Reliable insurance coverage is essential.
Travel Health Insurance
Divers are travellers, which is why we offer specific insurance covers for costs deriving from non-diving emergencies abroad, so that our members can enjoy holidays with peace of mind.
Professional Third-Party Liability Insurance
Diving professionals are offered a €4,000,000 cover for third-party liability. This specific insurance is made for professionals in need of comprehensive protection against another party’s claims, including legal defence
