PMVA (Prevention and Management of Violence and Aggression) Manikin

The PMVA (Prevention and Management of Violence and Aggression) Manikin was designed in collaboration with a leading secure hospital, specialising in physical intervention training aimed at reducing the escalation of violence in mental health establishments. It has quickly proven to be a popular choice and is equally valuable to those managing potentially violent persons, such as prisons, the Police and even special schools.

Since Covid19 struck, many trainers are looking for ways to minimise person-to-person contact and in testing, it was found that 90% of different hold techniques can now be physically trained whilst social distancing. This has enabled the secure hospital who helped develop the manikin to successfully complete return to work assessments and refresher training much more quickly than previous training methods.





This manikin was designed primarily for those who work with potentially violent offenders or patients, allowing teams to learn important techniques which ultimately reduce the escalations of aggression or violence.
