Manikins, Infant

Definition : Manikins designed to resemble the whole human body of an infant. These manikins consist of an accurate three-dimensional integral or dissectible representation of the infant 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, navel) of the infant anatomy. The 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. Infant manikins are used for demonstration and learning the different structures of the anatomy of a baby and/or to learn how to manipulate the infant body during other activities (e.g., water rescue). They may be used as components of simulators used for training in particular examination, therapeutic, surgical, or postmortem procedures in babies.
