We'll keep December's Newsletter brief.


Bariquins on the BBC



Bariquins on the BBC's The One Show.

The Bariquins bariatric training mannequin was featured in one of this month's episodes of The One Show on BBC1. Barry was shown in a short but interesting and sensitive report on how dealing with plus-size people affects staff of the NHS and the emergency services.

To see the episode,
click on the above image or here.

(The report starts around 6 minutes 15 seconds
into the programme.)

Barry is shown in use by Northamptonshire Fire & Rescue Service demonstrating how they train to deal with moving a collapsed plus-size person through such obstacles as a doorway. Have a look at the footage to see a Bariquin used in context and hear what advantages training with a Bariquin can have.

As promised, we're keeping it brief, so.............
