The Mountain Rescue Manikin was originally developed in conjunction with Scottish Mountain Rescue. Our standard manikins were too heavy to be able to carry up a mountain to set a training scenario for body recovery following an avalanche so we were asked if we were able to create something that would fit their brief.
We are pleased to say that this has been achieved and the Mountain Rescue manikin is the result.
The manikin is made from the same flame retardant Polyester used in Police ballistic/stab vests, which typically has 4 times the strength and abrasion resistance of P.V.C (the materials previously used) and is filled with foam to give the bulk and firmness of a body whilst being lightweight and easy to manoeuvre. The manikin also comes complete with a backpack that enables the manikin to be folded in half and easily transported.
We have now integrated RECCO® reflectors into the Mountain Rescue manikin to make it the only Avalanche Training Manikin in the world to utilise this rescue system. The RECCO® reflector makes an avalanche victim searchable to professional rescuers. It is a complement to a transceiver and RECCO® detectors are used by rescue teams in over 800 ski resorts worldwide.
Available in just the one weight and size complete with backpack.
Moving and handling heavy items carries certain risks. Please read and distribute these guides to all involved in using our training dummies
