Frank’s specifications

An inside view on Frank’s features and specifications that set him apart in realism, functionality, and technological innovation.

Ultra-realistic human-like simulation mannequin

Frank looks and feels real. He has a fully articulated internal steel skeleton, over-molded in silicone with a compliance similar to human skin and soft tissue. He is designed with precise anthropometric calibration, ensuring accurate mass distribution across its segments, mirroring a real human body. He has anatomically accurate joints ensuring realistic movement. Standing at 5 feet 7 inches and weighing 165 pounds, he accurately represents an average human male body. Moving him from prone to supine, or in a lateral log roll the mannequin’s segments authentically mimic the movement and inertia of an unconscious person.

High-fidelity interactive airway management training

Frank has a weighted head connected to a fully articulated cervical spine, with a compliant anatomically detailed full airways connected to an articulated jaw. He supports head tilt, chin lift and jaw thrust manoeuvres, oral pharyngeal and nasal pharyngeal airway insertions, Insertion of supraglottic airways and endotracheal intubation. When ventilated his chest rises proportionally to the volume of air and you can do needle thoracostomy. He has embedded sensors providing feedback on ventilation efforts with BVM. 

High-fidelity interactive CPR training

Frank has a unique chest cage design with optional spring variability, collapsible ribs allowing realistic chest compressions up to 3 inches manually or with mechanical CPR devices and anatomical landmarks. He has embedded sensors providing feedback on chest compressions according to international resuscitation guidelines.  


High fidelity interactive training on application of spinal motion restriction

Frank has an advanced design with an articulated cervical and lumbar spine, integrated with motion sensors. This sophisticated setup, paired with a biomechanical model, provides accurate and immediate feedback on head and trunk movements during manipulation. It’s an invaluable tool for practitioners, enabling them to refine their skills in applying manual in-line stabilization and spinal motion restriction on simulated patients suspected of having spinal injuries. Importantly, it offers real-time insights into the effectiveness of their stabilization techniques during the critical processes of patient mobilization and transfer. This cutting-edge feature is underpinned by extensive research.

Authentic patient care transfer, mobilization, extraction and evacuation training

Engineered for in situ training almost anywhere, Frank’s unique articulated internal skeleton with accurate weight distribution and biomechanical joint motion fidelity make transferring, mobilizing, extracting, and evacuating him real. Moving him from prone to supine, in a lateral log roll, during aerial rescue, in a car extrication, the mannequin’s segments authentically mimic the movement and inertia of an unconscious person. Dragging him and evacuating him while keeping him alive is challenging. His strengthen internal skeleton is engineered for resistance to wear, stress, and abuse.

Robust modular design and with interchangeable parts

Frank is like a transformer. He has arms and legs that can be separated from the trunk to facilitate maintenance, transport and storage or to be be changed. The external silicone face mask and chest mask can be changed to accommodate different gender and ethnicity or replaced. The head and trunk can be used with or without the arms and legs as an airway trainer. Frank can become almost anyone and can be use whole or in part to accommodate skill training for a long time
