When using a helicopter to rescue someone who has been in the water for some time, appropriate retrieval methods prevent cardiac problems associated with a sudden release of a hydrostatic squeeze. It is preferable to raise the casualty horizontally to minimize the effect of water pressure. Ruth Lee Ltd worked with the rescue experts at Bristow Helicopters (UK) to make changes to the popular Man Overboard model, allowing it to perform more accurately in a helicopter winch scenario.

Features include:

  • Has lighter legs than the standard Man Overboard model, meaning the legs float more readily when fitting the harness/strops in water.
  • The manikin will sit in a stable W position while winched to the helicopter.
  • Compatible with standard and Hypothermic Lifting straps.
  • Buckle clips on the inside knees and ankles allow for the option of keeping legs together.
  • The tough nylon mesh carcass allows the water to penetrate quickly, allowing the legs to drop beneath the surface, leaving only the head and shoulders visible, if desired.
  • Dry weight 40Kg (Adult) increases to approximately 65Kg retrieval weight from water.
  • Floats horizontally, vertically, or at 45 degrees to simulate a live person or dead body achieved by redistributing foam pieces within the overalls in a matter of seconds.
  • Bright orange overalls and SOLAS reflective tape on the head make the manikin highly visible in open water.
  • Strong webbing loop at the back allows easy handling, storage, and suspension for drying.
  • The soft feet allow rapid drainage to prevent too much water in the helicopter.
  • Comes with overalls and soft feet, easily replaced if damaged.
  • Lifting Sling NOT included
