Rugged, realistic in size, weight distribution and handling characteristics. Upgraded to a polyester fabric shell material. Manufactured using a flexible inner core and an outer shell. The Patient Handling manikins totally eliminate the risk of the pinching associated with the joints of the plastic-bodied manikins. The inner core is weighted to human proportions using 4.4 lb packets of aggregate. For structural integrity, the packets are sewn to a nylon inner dummy with all the body parts (arms, legs, chest, etc.) held in place with polypropylene webbing. Now constructed in Polyester: conforms to BS EN ISO 6330), OEKO-TEX Standard 100, and ISO 17050-1 - the new material is tough, safe to handle, and very easy to clean. All seams are double-stitched and are reinforced with high-density polypropylene webbing. Includes storage loop to be used to hang manikin up to dry (NOT A DRAG HANDLE FOR TRAINING USE). The red headcover can be removed and washed if it becomes dirty.
