This manikin has been designed in consultation with the Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS) and is a revolutionary new product which allows trainee lifeguards to learn vital skills. See video link below.

Once thrown into the pool, the manikin quickly sinks beneath the surface and lifeguards can train to retrieve it from the bottom, tow it to the side using a variety of towing techniques, and perfect their lifting techniques. All using one manikin, instead of switching between plastic torsos and live volunteers!


  • Carefully designed and tested to create realistic buoyancy - it will sink, yet is buoyant enough to float when being towed.
  • It will feel like an unconscious person in the water.
  • A more realistic challenge compared to using live volunteers who may try to subconsciously assist the trainee.
  • Reduces the need to use volunteers in training scenarios, avoiding potential injury and any embarrassment caused by close personal contact.
  • Greatly improves performance - trainers can easily spot weaknesses such as slow towing, as the manikins legs will start to sink if a consistent speed is not maintained.
  • Flexible arms, reinforced with strong webbing allow the arms to be raised aloft, letting lifeguards practice hauling the victim from the water using correct lifting techniques.
  • No need to switch from plastic torso dummy to real volunteer part way through training this manikin can be fetched from the bottom of the pool, towed to the side and recovered from the water - promoting more realistic and more effective training, ultimately making lifeguards even better!
  • Constructed using a reinforced Nylon mesh which allows water ingress, meaning the manikin will sink when placed in water.
  • Mesh allows for ventilation and rapid draining when the manikin is retrieved from the water.
  • Detailed care instructions will be provided with the manikin.
  • Dry Weight: 66 lbs (30 kg)

  • Special Materials:

    Constructed from the same flame retardant material used in Police ballistic/stab vests, offering 4x the strength and abrasion resistance of 16oz canvas or P.V.C. (conforms to OEKO-TEX® Standard 100, BS EN ISO 12947-2 & 14116: 2008). High density polypropylene webbing (25mm rated to 207 Kg, 50mm rated to 440Kg). Buoyancy characteristics are achieved using closed cell foam and PVC pellets with s.g. 1.5.

    Due to the construction of this product, which is manufactured with a plastic spine, it is important to to properly 'unfold' the manikin prior to use. It is a VERY simple process which takes minutes. It is possible that your manikin will be delivered in a folded position and therefore it may be necessary to re-straighten the torso for optimum performance.

  • Simply lay the manikin flat on the floor, face down and then pull the legs up over the back to the shoulders.
  • Hold in this position for around 20 seconds.
  • This should be sufficient to readjust the internal structure.
  • When you begin using the manikin, if it doesnt lie flat on the surface of the pool when you throw it in, repeat the process described above.
