WATER-FILLABLE BARIATRIC SUIT



WATER-FILLABLE BARIATRIC SUIT

 

 

 

Staff in every sector need training to effectively handle heavier people.

 

This product 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.

 

WATER-FILLABLE BARIATRIC SUIT

 

Obesity is a very real problem in the UK and across the world and judging by government figures and anecdotal evidence the problem is rapidly getting worse.

 

All sectors as well as Fire & Rescue, Hospitals, Ambulance can experience heavier casualties.

 

But positioning a full-sized and full-weight bariatric manikin can be difficult depending on the training. We are therefore pleased to offer a new solution for Bariatric Training.

 

In addition to our Bariatric manikins, you can now purchase a Water-fillable suit which converts any adult Duty Range manikin into a Bariatric!

 

This is a new addition to our Bariatric range and allows customers 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.

 

The Water-Fillable Bariatric Suit comes as a complete kit including soft feet, plus all adapters and two short hoses for filling. A water flow meter is also included and allows you to monitor how much water is being added. This comes complete in a study bag for easy carrying and storage.  

 

The kit is light enough for one person to carry into position and set up the training scenario. Simply place the suit over your existing Duty Range manikin, attach a hosepipe and fill it up with water to achieve the required weight. Up to 150kg of additional weight can be added using water. This process takes 15-20 mins from arrival at the venue, to having the manikin set up to train with (depending on water pressure at your venue)

 

When the training is over, use the special valves and a hosepipe to empty the water, or if you are outside, release the valves to empty the suit.

 

FEATURES & BENEFITS

  • Specially designed suit converts any 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.
  • The weight of the complete manikin will depend on the dummy you place the suit on. 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 to 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.
  • Pyjamas and a carrying sheet for easier handling and positioning are available to purchase separately. The Bariatric Carry sheet has a safe working load 600Kg (LOLER certified).
  • Comes complete with soft boots, all adapters, a water flow meter and carrying holdall. 

 

WHO USES THEM?

This product is ideal for anyone who performs or delivers bariatric training, whether as a rescue, or from a general patient handling perspective.
