Bariatric (Obese) Training Manikins



BARIATRIC TRAINING MANIKINS

Obesity is a very real problem in the UK and across the world and judging by government figures and anecdotal evidence the problem is rapidly getting worse.

All sectors as well as Fire & Rescue, Hospitals, Ambulance can experience heavier casualties:

Airlines accommodate increasingly heavy passengers - we lent an RL180 to Airbus in Broughton, UK for a multi agency exercise and Nicole (as she was called!) brought the exercise to a standstill! It took the combined teams 15 minutes to formulate a plan of how to remove her from the training fuselage!

Shipping: Cruise Ships could have many obese/bariatric passengers on board, would your staff know how to deal with passengers of these weights?

Prisons: do your officers have sufficient training to be able to move prisoners weighing more than 130 Kg if an incident arose?

Care Homes: not all situations will require the emergency services, could your staff manage?

Casualties / Victims / Patients / Clients / Staff / Passengers come in all shapes and sizes - can you safely manoeuvre a larger person? 

 

FEATURES & BENEFITS

  • Constructed in waterproof Polyester: conforms to BS EN ISO 6330), OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 and ISO 17050-1 - the new material is tough, safe to handle and easy to clean.
  • Anatomically correct weight distribution gives the 'feel' of an unconscious person, helping to improve pre-hospital clinical care.
  • Strong enough to be buried under concrete or steel lintels with no damage; placed in or under vehicles; - these manikins are tough enough for all training exercises!
  • We have worked very hard to achieve a 'fluidity of movement' with the weight rather than just producing a heavy 'lump', so these manikins are very realistic to work with.
  • They are designed for a team of at least 4-6 people to rescue and are supplied complete with a carrying sheet to assist in carrying and positioning the manikin. The carry sheet hasa safe working load of up to 600kg (LOLER certified).
  • The neck provides the ability to fit an immobilisation/extrication collar if required - to promote proper casualty care.
  • The 90 Kg Manikin is useful where a lighter weight is required without forfeiting the bulk of the bariatric dummy.

Throughout the history of medicine, clinical learning has been based on imitating the actions of others. Medical students are expected to learn complex medical tasks by watching other clinicians perform that task. This is known as the “see one, do one” approach, or the apprenticeship model. Certainly, the “see one, do one” approach to learning will continue to have its place. In many cases, however, experts within healthcare see simulation as an alternative, or at least a stepping-stone, between classroom learning and clinical practice. This means change.
