It is essential that lifeguards stay warm at all times during the cooler months. Lifeguards like other athletes need to be ready to utilize their muscles at a moments notice. In order to prevent injuries lifeguards must maintain a consistent body temperature to be able to perform without experiencing strains or cramping. Also, lifeguards are often susceptible to lower immunity when in the elements and need to prevent susceptibility to illness by maintaining core body temperature.

Lifeguards and Aquatics Leaders at the Association of Aquatic Professionals (AOAP) National Annual Conference that took place in Frisco, Texas had the first look at the new innovative Patent Pending Lifeguard Training Manikin - Silhouette.
Conference attendees were impressed with the innovative use of the Dive Brick inserted into the center of the Manikin. The use of the Brick allows the Manikin to sink to the bottom of the pool / lake / ocean and serve as a Passive Doll / Silhouette. The unique design of this Manikin, unlike that of Dolls, allows the Lifeguard to rescue the device and bring it to the surface using various standard lifesaving rescue maneuvers. Once at the surface the Manikin (Victim) can be grasped and brought to safety.
When the Dive Brick is removed, the Lifeguard Training Manikin - Silhouette floats at the water's surface, ideal for rescues at or near the surface of the water.
