Bariatric (obese) training manikins from Survival Technology
Survival Technology’s bariatric (obese) training manikins are ideal for the following training scenarios: Obesity is a very real problem in the UK and other western countries. How would your team deal with an obese casualty who has suffered a heart attack in a bathroom at home or in a lift at the local shopping centre? RTC extrications present an extra challenge with obese passengers and staff at care homes, hospitals, prisons, hotels and airlines will be increasingly confronted with scenarios requiring realistic bariatric training. Constructed from the same flame retardant material used in Police ballistic/stab vests, offering four times the strength and abrasion resistance of 16oz canvas or PVC, which conforms to OEKO-TEX Standard 100, BS EN ISO 12947-2 and 14116:2008). High density polypropylene webbing: 25mm rated to 207kg, 50mm rated to 440kg. These training manikins are tough enough to withstand being buried under concrete or steel lintels or driven over by a 4x4 vehicle, are made out of water repellent material, making it suitable for wet or foul scenarios such as hazmat/CBRN and specially designed to achieve a ‘fluidity of movement’ for more realistic handling. An immobilisation/extrication collar can be fitted around the neck of our adult manikins to promote proper casualty care. The manikins are designed to be carried by a team of at least 4 to 6 people, are supplied with a carrying sheet for easier handling and positioning and has a safe working load of 600kg (LOLER certified).
