Survival Technology: A world first for rescue training!
An exciting collaboration between medical simulation experts Lifecast Body Simulation and rescue training manikin manufacturers Ruth Lee allows us to introduce a world-first for water rescue training, the Advanced Water Rescue Manikin. We want to see a world where appropriate clinical care can be practised in an environment where it will take place for real. That means medical stabilisation at height, in confined spaces and both ‘in’ and ‘on’ water. Unlike anything else available to rescue teams, this manikin will allow you to accurately simulate the rescue of a drowning victim from the water and then continue with essential medical care once it is pulled into your boat or onto dry land. This lets both rescuers and medical practitioners train more effectively and more quickly, under pressure and in hostile conditions.
The rugged Ruth Lee outer body aids buoyancy in all waters, whether open waters, pools, lakes and rivers. It will float in a drowned position for ultra-realistic rescues.
The torso of the manikin is an ultra-realistic male form, with all anatomical features you’d expect from a medical simulation manikin for airway management skills. It can be bagged, intubated and due to the technology used in its construction, you can practise both dry and wet lung drowning skills, a world-first for water rescue training.
