Welcome to the new look
Bariquins mannequins are made up of 15 weighted sections plus a jacket, head, hands and feet. The heaviest section weighs just 16kg (that's less than your flight suitcase). A Bariquin can be carried by one person (when not assembled) and takes less than 10 minutes to put together.
In this month's newsletter:
- Our new video is launched
- We've booked the Emergency Services Show 2017
- Our enhanced connector markings

Our New Video
Here's the link to our latest video on YouTube -you'll find us at "Bariquins for Quality Bariatric Training Mannequins".
Take two minutes to get to know what a Bariquin mannequin is all about and how it can benefit your organisation.
There may be some areas that you hadn't even thought of.
Emergency Services Show 2017
We've booked to appear at this year's Emergency Services Show. It's at the NEC, Birmingham. We'll be back at Stand P65 and we'll be there with 'Barry' (sat down to the right, above) and 'Benny' (lying on the trolley to the left). They're both very amenable to a 'selfie' with you.
The show is on the 20th and 21st September, that's a Wednesday and a Thursday. Why not come along and see what a Bariquin is and how well they are made? When we exhibited last year, we got some great positive comments from all sectors. This is your chance to see what the buzz is about. Here's the link for a visitor pass. There's lots to see there and what's more, it's FREE entry!
Enhanced Connector Markings
We received some feedback about the connectors around the hip/buttock area being a little confusing. To help the assembler, we've now marked the inner and the outer sections of the connectors similar to their opposing connecting piece. They are marked either along the prongs or the bases of the connectors or both. The corresponding connecting part will be marked on the external section in a similar way. This avoids complications during set-up.
(In the image above, the new markings are shown on the unfastened connectors to the left and the fastened ones to the right.)
