In high risk environments, or institutions which house vulnerable people such as Mental Health Hospitals, Learning Disability Centres, Police Stations, Prisons, Care Homes, suicide by hanging is tragically high. Staff who might face and need to manage suicides and self-harm on a regular basis, need the correct training to safely manage this. Training includes the use of a hook knife to properly release a ligature and this specialist manikin has been designed to allow teams to learn to effectively and sensitively manage this situation.
This manikin has anatomical features which allow you to practise airway management skills, with the hope of reviving someone who has been found hanging.
The manikin overalls are constructed from the same flame retardant material used in Police ballistic/stab vests, offering 4x the strength and abrasion resistance of 16oz canvas or P.V.C. (conforms to OEKO-TEX® Standard 100, BS EN ISO 12947-2 & 14116: 2008) High density polypropylene webbing (25mm rated to 207 Kg, 50mm rated to 440Kg).
An innovative product from Ruth Lee to support professional carers and staff from the Emergency Services to safely and sensitively handle ligature suicides.
The manikin is 1.8m and weighs 25Kg
