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. The need for heavyweight manikins has never been greater.
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? An obese dummy might help your staff to avoid injury through poor patient handling skills.
Casualties / Victims / Patients / Clients / Staff / Passengers come in all shapes and sizes - can you safely manoeuvre a larger person?
From September 2017 we will be offering our customers both a hire or a buy option on our standard 90, 180 and 260kgs Bariatric Manikins.
We understand that sometimes your bariatric training requirements are not weekly or even monthly and therefore you might want to consider loaning a Bariatric Manikin for a week or two instead of buying one. The cost of hiring includes delivery of the manikin to designated premises, and you can arrange your own courier to return the manikin once you are done.
Call today for more information 01490 413 282 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
