Description

The Act+Fast Anti Choking Trainer is worn by students in CPR class to learn the Abdominal Thrust Maneuver (Heimlich). When performed correctly, a foam plug shoots into the air, making instruction realistic and leaving students confident.

This is the top range version with back slap plate as well (better than the one in video below)

For years instructors have struggled to show students “how it may be performed in reality, only harder...”

The Actfast Anti Choking Trainer offers a realistic way to teach students how to perform abdominal thrusts (the Heimlich Manoeuvre) correctly and safely.

 

“Unlike CPR Manikins there are no replaceable parts in the Actfast Anti Choking Trainer making it extremely cost effective”

 

 

 

Designed for one person to wear whilst another demonstrates the manoeuvre. If the skill is performed correctly then an object will be projected from the trainer, this simulates the release of the object that is causing the patient to choke.

 

If the manoeuvre is not done correctly then the object will not be released.

The Actfast Anti Choking Trainer teaches students to perform the technique correctly without the risk of injury to another student thus leaving the class fully confident in performing abdominal thrusts.

 

 

1. Pull the vest on, cinch the waist belt and drop a foam plug into the 'airway'

2. Place your hands in the correct position, between the navel and ribcage

3. Deliver a quick, upward Abdominal Thrust Maneuver (Heimlich)

4. The Act+Fast trainer can be used standing, sitting, on the ground or even for choking self-rescue by using a counter or chair

5. Caution: Do not use force, it is not necessary and may cause injury

Intended for use under the direction of CPR Instructors
