Description

  • Designed and tested to create realistic buoyancy
  • A more realistic challenge
  • No need to switch from plastic dummy to real volunteer
  • Optional Overalls to protect material

The Pool Rescue Manikin is a revolutionary new product designed to innovate the way lifeguard training is conducted. Recently voted by readers of the Aquatics International Magazine as a 'Most Valuable Product' for 2022.

Designed and developed with assistance from the Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS) UK, this manikin has been created to allow trainee lifeguards to learn all the skills required to safely retrieve a person from the pool.

Lifeguards can perfect a variety of safe towing and lifting techniques seamlessly without needing to switch between different equipment or live volunteers.

Features

  • Carefully designed and tested to create realistic buoyancy - it will sink, yet is buoyant enough to float when being towed. It will feel like an ‘unconscious’ person in the water.
  • A more realistic challenge compared to using live volunteers who may try to subconsciously ‘assist’ the trainee.
  • The use of a manikin can reduce the need to use volunteers in training scenarios, thereby avoiding potential injury and any embarrassment caused by close personal contact. Greatly improves performance - trainers can easily spot weaknesses such as slow towing, as the manikin’s legs will start to sink if a consistent speed is not maintained.
  • Flexible arms, reinforced with strong webbing allow the arms to be raised aloft, letting lifeguards practice hauling the ‘victim’ from the water using correct lifting techniques.
  • No need to switch from plastic dummy to real volunteer part way through training – this manikin can be fetched from the bottom of the pool, towed to the side and recovered from the water - promoting more realistic and more effective training, ultimately making lifeguards even better!
  • Constructed using a reinforced Nylon mesh which allows water ingress, meaning the manikin will sink when placed in water.
  • Mesh allows for ventilation and rapid draining when the manikin is retrieved from the water.

Detailed care instructions will be provided with the manikin.

Special Materials: 

  • Constructed from the same flame retardant material used in Police ballistic/stab vests, offering 4x the strength and abrasion resistance of 16oz canvas or P.V.C. (conforms to OEKO-TEX® Standard 100, BS EN ISO 12947-2 & 14116: 2008).
  • High-density polypropylene webbing (25mm rated to 207 Kg, 50mm rated to 440Kg). Buoyancy characteristics are achieved using closed cell foam and PVC pellets with s.g. 1.5.

Manikin Overalls

The weight of the manikins makes it difficult for one person to carry and move around so they tend to get dragged along the floor, which eventually causes damage to the materials.

Because of this, Ruth Lee have created Manikin Overalls to protect the materials and extend the life of the manikin. The Overalls feature of a skin-coloured suit and black hood

The overalls also include an anchor point for attaching a rope, so it no longer needs to be tied around the neck or limbs of the manikin and reduces any damage this causes too.

Available in adult and junior manikin sizes.
