About Ruth Lee Ltd.

Founded over 30 years ago in the Kensington area of Liverpool. Ruth Lee have been design and manufacturing rescue training manikins from their factory in North Wales for over 30 years and are the only ISO 9001:2008 accredited manufacturer of rescue training manikins within Europe, so you can be assured that you will be ordering a manikin whose quality is second to none.

The Duty Range of training dummies are our most popular models for common rescue scenarios such as working at height, confined space, USAR, RTA etc as well as general handling exercises but we can now supply a range of manikins to suit any training scenario.

Tecsen Technologies have been partner with Ruth Lee since year 2009 in Malaysia.

Ruth Lee Search and Rescue Training Manikins


Made in exactly the same way as the popular Man Overboard manikin, the only difference is the colour. The Search & model is deliberately designed to be difficult to see in the water to enable crews to develop the ‘search’ element of their Search & training, making this model particularly suitable for Police Forces or inland water teams.

This manikin can float at any angle between the vertical and horizontal by simply moving the foam pieces between the chest pockets and the legs, a process which takes seconds.


  • Supplied complete with a protective overall constructed in tough Polyester (conforms to BS EN ISO 15025:2002, OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 and ISO 17050-1) – the same material used in Police ballistic/stab vests.
  • This manikin will easily withstand a fall of 5 – 6 metres into water with no damage, these manikins are tough!
  • A polypropylene loop to the back allows the manikin to be lowered into position or hung up to dry.
  • The black mask supplied makes the manikin even harder to find by covering the brightly covered head but this can be left off at night to expose the Solas reflective tape if required.
  • Polyethylene strips allow flexibility in and out of the water but prevent the manikin from bending in half when using stretchers or recovery devices like a Jason’s Cradle.
  • Protective overalls and boots are user replaceable and greatly extend the life of the manikin
