PREVIOUSLY CALLED THE CONSCIOUS CASUALTY MANIKIN
This dummy was developed with the co-operation of Surf Life Saving Australia as a water rescue dummy for IRB Racing, IRB driver training & Tube Rescue practice. After two years of development, several prototypes and extensive testing they were delighted with the result. During the testing, the dummy was also found to be suitable for Jet Ski rescue training and other general rescues scenarios.
For IRB driver training you can now train year-round, in the roughest surf, close to the reef and in the coldest weather to practice those fast pickups as many times as you like. This dummy never complains about the cold water, the aching arms and the sore shoulder or jaw from when the rescuer slightly misjudged the pickup! These manikins will provide uniformity in the size and weight of casualties being rescued, an important factor in competitions.
The problem for many SLS clubs is to find enough willing volunteers to act as a patient for the IRB rescue teams for practice, especially during the colder months - consequently, skill development suffers. Inflatable Rescue Boat (IRB) competitions/training aims to:

Moving and handling heavy items carries certain risks. Please read and distribute these guides to all involved in using our training dummies
The dummy weighs 20kgs when dry. After a few minutes in the water the dummy takes on the water and assumes an upright posture with arms aloft.
For IRB Racing, the dummy attaches to the 'can' using a webbing leash with a velcro connection. The leash attaches around the neck of the dummy. As you grab the dummy with your arm through the dummies arms the velcro releases and you drag it into the IRB.
The weight you are hauling is the dry weight of the dummy plus the water that has soaked into the dummy, ~ 40+ kg Once in the IRB, the water runs out of the dummy and quickly returns to about 20kg which makes for reasonably easy weight management.
The orange overall is made of polyurethane coated polyester which is resistant to salt water. Polypropylene webbing is stitched to the overall in all high stress points. Beneath the overall the carcass is a tough nylon mesh, as used in our standard water rescue dummy which has been used by NATO military rescue dummies for years.
