Pre 1987 PADI dive table was modeled after US Navy Post 87 The model was Rogers and still is. Rogers and Huggins developed the model. DSAT is owned by PADI, so to say the developers of the model were independent of PADI is hogwash they were definitely affiliated. I don't know how Rogers actually got involved with PADI, but does that really matter. After the table was in place and being used. Roger's and Huggins continued to research the model with field testing over a long period of time. Well simply put to many of the subjects were being bent doing repetitive dives. So PADI silenced them. They can never release their findings publicaly. Guess what if they do they will be sued. Ring a bell. So I concede I can not prove this without their data. In conclusion I suggest if you are going to do repetive diving no what model your table or computer is based on.
