Ruth Lee Advanced Water Rescue Manikin (AWRM)

The Advanced Water Rescue Manikin is designed to mimic a drowned person in the water and delivers realistic medical simulation training which prepares rescuers for the real world. No other rescue manikin provides this level of fidelity (Realism), with opportunities to practice rescue skills, coupled with the continuation of care to the hospital and the Intensive Care Unit.

The AWRM floats like an unconscious person but can also be weighted to partially or fully sink to increase the realism of rescue. When in water, the hydrostatic squeeze (pressure of water) closes a valve within the lung mechanics. Once rescued from the water, the mechanism releases, creating the movement of the lungs and chest. Submerging the manikin creates an amount of water in the oropharynx, the middle part of the throat behind the mouth, which can be removed using manual or suction methods.

The drowning mechanism even allows for the manikin to create "foam" to replicate the noises and foaming commonly seen in drowning people. When people drown they can inhale about 30 ml of water into the lungs, and the manikin is able to replicate this phenomenon, as well as allow for dry lung drownings. The manikin, which is patent-pending, has taken two years of R&D to perfect.

Features & Benefits:
  • A high-tech drowning torso from Lifecast for ultra-realistic medical skills training, encased in a rugged Ruth Lee body which allows for use in many water rescue situations
  • One manikin which lets users create a highly realistic drowning scenario. Use the same equipment for water rescue and medical skills
  • Specialist technology replicates hydrostatic squeeze to allow for wet or dry lung drowning scenarios. A world-first for water rescue training
  • The manikin is designed to mimic a drowned person in the water - it floats like an unconscious person but can also be weighted to sink or increase the realism of rescue
  • Pockets on arms, legs, chest and back to allow for additional diver's weights or equivalent to be added (maximum of 14kg can be added before the manikin will sink and we would advise the use of a buoyancy aid to prevent this from happening)
  • Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation - chest compression - 5-6cm with built in recoil
  • Supplied with easy drain wellingtons OR soft shoes to allow military uniforms to be dressed over the carcass
  • Easy access point to reach drainage/fill. 3-way tube lets you introduce liquid to replicate "foaming" as part of a wet lung rescue
  • Anatomically correct weight distribution for the feel of a real casualty 
  • Dry weight 52kgs in total
