The Suunto Reduced Gradient Bubble Model is a state of the art algorithm for managing both dissolved gas and free-gas in all its stages in the tissues and blood of the diver.
The advantage of Suunto RGBM is a more accurate representation of what is happening in the diver's body, through its ability to adapt to a wide variety of situations.
The Suunto RGBM algorithm automatically adapts its predictions of both the effects of micro bubble build up and adverse dive profiles in the current dive series. It will further modify these calculations according to the personal adjustment that a diver can select.
Suunto RGBM algorithm is used in all Suunto dive computers.
Suunto Technical RGBM Algorithm
Get more flexibility during your ascent with continuous decompression
Fewer tasks to worry about – no need to constantly monitor time, depth and when to switch gases
Get all dive-critical data from one device – no need for separate table, depth gauge and watch
Technical RGBM algorithm is used in Suunto HelO2 dive computer
Dr. Bruce Wienke is the developer of the RGBM algorithm.
