Pool Rescue Manikin Recognised as 2022 “Most Valuable Product” in the lifeguard industry!

Navigation Menu

Readers of Aquatics International Magazine have spoken, and we’re delighted to have had our Pool Rescue manikin named as a ‘Most Valuable Product’ for 2022!

Our manikin features in this year’s MVP list, alongside just 25 other products designed to enhance facilities of all sizes, from new waterpark attractions and leisure pool products to innovations in lifeguard training aids and pool pad equipment.

The Pool Rescue Manikin is one of the latest innovations available to lifeguards around the world to transform the way they train to save lives. Developed with the assistance of water safety charity The Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK) and endorsed for use in training and assessments, the Pool Rescue manikin has been widely adopted by lifeguard trainers all around the world to improve the skills and confidence of their lifeguards.   

Using the Pool Rescue manikin, trainers can set up complete rescue scenarios, without switching between different equipment and volunteers – ultimately testing their skills more accurately whilst giving them greater confidence in their ability to save an unconscious casualty in a genuine emergency.

Sarah Hampson, International Development Manager at Ruth Lee ltd said,

“Drowning prevention, and what can be done to improve statistics is such an important subject, and one which is very close to our hearts at Ruth Lee; we have been creating water rescue manikins for over 20 years. Therefore, we make it our goal to ensure that we give rescue professionals the best tools to learn how to carry out effective rescues.

We are thrilled that Aquatics International Magazine have named the Pool Rescue manikin as one of their ‘Most Valuable Products’. At Ruth Lee Ltd, we are all about creating realistic training – so when a lifeguard from Canada approached us because she was not satisfied that her trainees were getting the best experience with a disjointed, unrealistic training process, we really did jump at the chance to develop a tool which would address this issue. It is fantastic that so many lifeguards agree that the Pool Rescue Manikin has transformed their training!”
