For the more complex rescue scenarios the Multi-Trauma dummy offers features that allow a variety of interesting rescue training options.
The Multi-Trauma dummy has the right arm and right leg (below the knee) removable to simulate a serious amputation injury to the victim. The removable limbs can also be partially attached using the Velcro at the end of the limb to partially attach the limb – in this way the limb may fall off during recovery if a thorough injury assessment is not made by the rescuer.
An orifice on the left side of the torso allows a fence post, scaffold pole or similar to penetrate through the dummy and be firmly secured to prevent casual removal. The trainees must follow the full procedure for extrication of the patient with an impalement injury.
Additionally, the new style head provides the ability to fit an immobilisation/extrication collar.
So, now you can simulate partial or complete amputation by releasing the right arm and/or leg, impale the left torso with a stake or pole and simulate a suspect broken neck.
Core construction is the same as the rugged General Purpose dummy and, therefore, these dummies are tough enough to be buried under concrete, have steel lintels, concrete slabs, trees or motor vehicles laid upon them to present a realistic scenarios for rescuers.
The protective overalls keep the dummy clean, and greatly increases the lifespan; they are produced using cotton/polyester woven fabric and are reinforced with high density polypropylene webbing in identified high stress areas.
The ends of the arms are further protected with Nylon reinforced PVC. The machine washable overalls are fitted to all sizes of dummy. The Multi-Trauma dummies can be used in temperatures up to 100ºC. Above this temperature or where ‘flash-over’ may occur we recommend using our Flame Retardant Rescue Dummy.
Available in 30kg and 50kg versions.
Supplied complete with Wellington boots. The boots protect the legs if the dummy is dragged along the ground.
All dummies are screen printed with a warning triangle, a handling risk note and space for you to record the asset number the date of purchase on the head.
As can be seen from the image opposite with the overalls removed, the General Purpose dummy has an outer carcass of 425g rot-proof canvas with all seams double stitched. High density polypropylene webbing provides extra strength and durability, especially at the high stress points.
The flexible inner core is weighted to human proportions using 2Kg packets of 5-10 mm crushed, washed stone aggregate. The weight packets are then sewn into a nylon inner, with all these body parts (arms, legs, chest etc) tied to the outer carcass using Polypropylene webbing. This method of construction prevents ‘slumping’ of the weight pouches and allows the dummy to maintain it’s shape when in use.
These inner components are separated and padded using 25mm polyurethane foam which results in a dummy with the life-like feel of a real casualty.
The ends of the detachable arm and lower leg have velcro on the ends which allow just enough adhesion to hold the arm and leg in place, if the dummy is moved without care – the limbs will fall off.
The new shaped head, also recently introduced, allows the fitting of most types of immobilisation collars, allowing this additional technique to be included in the training scenario.
If the head gets badly soiled you can now remove the red head cover and wash it.
