Utah Lifeguards, Aquatics, and Recreation Professionals met this week for the annual conference of the Utah Recreation & Parks Association (URPA) in St. George, Utah. In addition to being a time to network and catch up with friends and colleagues, this was an opportunity for those involved in the field of Aquatics to discuss new Lifesaving technologies and innovations in the Lifeguard industry. Among those in attendance were Lifeguards certified with the American Red Cross, StarGuard, and YMCA.
Innovations that have been making waves in Aquatics in recent years include the LIFE™ Rescue Tube, which is now the #1 selling rescue tube in the world; the Seal Quik™ Mask, which is the Lifeguard industry standard seal mask (based on lifesaving certification adoption); and the new Lifesaving Training Manikin - Silhouette, which debuted at the recent conference of the Association of Aquatic Professionals.

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.

Lifeguards will be learning more about this simple but yet very effective smart manikin in the weeks and months ahead.

The LIFE Rescue Tube is the most popular rescue tube among YMCA Lifeguards nationwide. More YMCA Aquatic Facilities are using the LIFE Tube now than any other rescue device. You may recognize YMCA Lifeguard Alec (Photo Above) who was featured on the cover of AQUATICS INTERNATIONAL Magazine earlier this year and was also seen throughout the new American Red Cross LIFEGUARD Training Manual.

Are you wondering how the ER7 Backboard and the CJ6 Backboard stack up against each other? eLifeguard.com® sells both backboards but is discontinuing sales of the CJ6. In our side by side testing and review, we found that the ER7 has smoother and tighter constructed seams. The seems at the parting line of the CJ6 are more porous, potentially allowing for hazardous fluid absorption. The ER7 Strap System is color coded for ease of use. The CJ6 Head Bed has more parts which make it susceptible to breakage, which we have seen from time to time during years of selling the product. The Head Immobilizer on the ER7 is made from a much more durable plastic and has replaceable vinyl dipped foam blocks that will not absorb fluids unlike the CJ6 that has porous permanently attached foam blocks. The ER7 can be seen throughout the pages of the new American Red Cross Lifeguard Training Manual and is used by aquatics and lifesaving agencies worldwide.
