Obesity is a very real problem across the world and judging by government figures the problem is getting worse. Rescue teams will need to consider how they will deal with casualties of this size and this dummy will enable realistic training to take place.
Ruth Lee has worked very hard to achieve a "fluidity of movement" with the weight rather than just producing a heavy "lump".
The bariatric dummy is based around a 100 kg general purpose dummy with a further 5 layers over the top, these being a mixture of the weighted layers and foam cushioning that enables the weight to slide from side to side; the effect is actually very realistic.
This is a real "team effort" dummy!
