Manikins, Child

Definition : Manikins designed to resemble the whole body of a child. Child manikins consist of an accurate three-dimensional integral or dissectible representation of the child body. They may include as components organs (e.g., liver, heart), anatomic systems (e.g., skeletal, nervous, and muscular), and or other structures (nasal cavities, middle ear) of the child anatomy. Manikins are made of natural (e.g., hair, bones, wood, metals) and or synthetic (e.g., plastics, silicone rubber) materials or a combination of these. Children manikins intended to simulate the anatomy of male and female children of different ages are available. Child manikins are used for demonstration and learning the different structures of the anatomy of a child and/or to learn how to manipulate the child body during other activities (e.g., water rescue). The manikins may be components of simulators for training in particular examination, therapeutic, surgical, or postmortem procedures in children.
