Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are training manikins used for?
Answer: Training manikins are used for simulating various scenarios in medical, rescue, and educational training. They provide a realistic training experience, providing a weighted body which is constructed as close as possible to human proportions and can be used to practice procedures such as technical rescue, evacuation, water rescue, CPR, first aid, patient handling, and more.

Q: Why should I use a training manikin?
Answer: In all situations where people are learning to use new techniques or equipment, a manikin is a far safer option than using other people. An important learning method is to make mistakes. Using a manikin, you can be as repetitive as you like and learn from any mistakes. If you make a mistake using a live person, you could cause them serious injury. In addition, using manikins lets teams set up difficult training exercises in risk environments (outdoors, in water or extrication scenarios) with a decreased risk of harm to others.

Q: How do I choose the right training manikin for my needs?
Answer: When choosing a training manikin, consider factors such as the training objectives, skill level of participants, specific scenarios to be simulated, and budget constraints. Additionally, look for features such as durability, anatomical accuracy, and compatibility with training accessories.

Q: Are training manikins suitable for different training environments?
Answer: Yes, training manikins are designed to be versatile and adaptable to various training environments. Whether you’re training in a classroom setting, a medical facility, or an outdoor rescue scenario, there are manikins available to suit your needs.

Q: How do I maintain and clean training manikins?
Answer: Proper maintenance and cleaning are essential for prolonging the lifespan of training manikins and ensuring hygienic training environments. Follow our manufacturer guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting after use, and store the manikins in a dry, well-ventilated area when not in use.
