Ruth Lee Patient Handling Training Manikin and Emergency Evacuation Manikin - The Patient Handling Manikin was developed to help improve lifting and handling training within the healthcare industry to learn to avoid musculoskeletal injury. Also, using manikins helps to maintain social distancing guidelines and reduced person-to-person contact. Click Here for a case study.
- Constructed with an elongated plastic spine that allows the manikin to sit upright in bed, a wheelchair, or hoist essentially acting as a ‘conscious’ patient would.
- Soft body joints to eliminate the risk of pinch welts and bruising; common injuries when using plastic bodied manikins.
- Constructed with plastic strips in the thigh to prevent too much bend when hoisting.
- Additional weight has been added to the bottom area to enable it to sit better in a sling, chair, or wheelchair.
- Velcro straps at the wrist allow trainers to keep the arms together, strap one arm up in a sling position during hoisting, or hold onto the sling.
- An immobilization/extrication collar can be fitted around the neck of our adult manikins to promote proper casualty care.
- Constructed from the same flame retardant material used in Police ballistic/stab vests
- The arms and legs are detachable at the shoulder and knee respectively, meaning you can simulate an amputee in training. Likewise, removing the arms and legs makes the manikin easier and lighter to move independently to set up training or transport between sites.
