This is a new addition to our Bariatric range and allows trainers to place a manikin in situ before adding the weight. It is the perfect choice where space is limited or when there are not enough people to position a full-weight bariatric manikin in place ready for training.

Description

For anyone who performs or delivers bariatric training, whether as a rescue or from a general patient handling perspective.

Features & Benefits;

  • Specially designed suit converts an adult Ruth Lee Duty Range manikin into a Bariatric
  • Innovative design allows one person to carry the equipment needed and position the ‘manikin’ in place
  • The suit is constructed from an extremely high specification Trilaminate of Cordura /Butyl/ Polyester fabric
  • This combination makes it fully waterproof, but more importantly, very hard-wearing and flexible
  • All seams are triple-stitched and taped by hand with 38 mm Aquatape for extra security against leakage
  • British manufactured and handmade
  • Due to the material used in construction, we do not recommend dragging the manikin across rough surfaces once it is wearing the suit – at all times, it should be moved using a bariatric carry sheet or sling
  • Up to 150kg of additional weight can be added using water (i.e. if you place the suit on a 30kg manikin, the total weight of the bariatric will be 180kg once the suit and water is added). The water flow meter records the weight in litres – 1 litre of water equals 1kg of additional weight
  • The suit when empty is approximately 5kg, and when placed in the bag for transportation with the adapters weighs around 7kg
  • Once filled, these manikins are designed to be carried by a team of at least 4-6 people
  • Comes complete with soft boots, a carry holdall, all adapters and a water flow meter
