Workers in the health and social care sectors are statistically at a high risk of sustaining lifting and handling injuries. At Ruth Lee we have developed several training manikins which are perfect for manual handling training – and in particular, our Patient Handling manikin is a favoured product within the health and care sector for teaching care staff to safely move people.
Soma Healthcare specialise in care at home (domiciliary care) but also run a Health Care training Centre based in London. After entering a competition at Health Plus Care in June 2017, Soma Healthcare became proud owners of their own Patient Handling manikin.
Trainers at Soma Healthcare use their manikin on a weekly basis to deliver first aid, and moving and handling training and Training Officer, Tony Wallis-Yeo said,
“We have been using a manikin in our training sessions for 6 months now and get lots of positive feedback about how realistic he is to handle. Manikins are a great tool for lifting and handling training.
I have been recommended him to everyone who will listen!”
