Lifeguards and Water Safety Pros at the Association of Aquatic Professionals (AOAP) Conference, that took place in Frisco, Texas earlier this year, who operate their Aquatics facilities using StarGuard Lifeguard Certification asked eLifeguard.com® to create a special version of the Training Manikin. The Training Manikin - Silhouette II was born!
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.
The innovative design of the Training Manikin - Silhouette II, as compared with the Training Manikin - Silhouette, which was designed with American Red Cross and YMCA Lifesaving Training in mind, allows the Manikin to be used in training for maneuvers such as the Leg-Wrap Rescue and the Extended Leg-Wrap Rescue which are unique to StarGuard Lifeguard certification.

"Hi, I'm lifeguard, Kevin McCarthy, and I'm here to talk about the eLifeguard.com® LIFE™ Tube.
As you can see, it's very unique in it's design. It's wider at the center, and tapers off on the sides. It does have very distinctive, what we call LIFE GRIPS™. Which is a soft, flexible - but yet, very strong grip handle, as you can see. All the way down the way down, around the product from the ends. From one end to the other. Which can help with assist, helps both lifeguard, and the victim.
As you can see, the product's symmetrical side to side. So we've got the LIFE GRIP™ around both sides - top and bottom. There is a texture design, a rib design running up and down the product, all the way around for increased grip. And thin material that's 100% waterproof, very UV resistant, and holds up year after year.
Unlike many tubes on the market that might break down after a year, year and a half in UV and harsh environment, like we're going to film in today. The LIFE™ Tube comes with a 3 year warranty. So it's - very, very durable product.
Also wanted to tell you about a key strap feature that we have here for the LIFE™ Tube. Instead of being glued or laminated through the product, the LIFE™ Tube strap is woven mechanically through the product, and then is doubled back over itself here in the center and velcro'ed down. So it can be replaced. Can be adjusted, and also accessories can be place on it. Whether that's a CPR mask or some other product. You can actually mechanically attach right to your strap.
Other features coming in the future are the eLifeguard.com® open water LIFE™ Strap, which will have distinguishable features with all brass attachment points. So that the tube can be brought together and attached and secured around the victim. Today in our demonstrations, we'll be using the standard pool strap, which does pull from the center here. And as we said, the strap weaves all the way through the product. So the load on the load on the strap is displaced evenly throughout the product. So both sides are extremely strong, as you can see here.
Great. Wanted to also point out to you on the LIFE™ Tube, the reach assist end loop. As you can see, comes straight out through the middle of the tube for easy access for the victim. Easy grip, sure grip. Will not pull out, will not move. And also included in that, we've got the LIFE GRIP™ handle. Which they can also grab in a panic situation. So you've got this place right here, and also the loop, which is easy to grab. And then the easy grip handle runs all the way around the tube, as you can see. From one end to the other. And also both sides.
Thanks for watching."
