I’m looking to pick up one of these for training. I’ve seen a few different one advertised that all look essentially the same and are priced toughly the same within $20-30 of each other. My question, for those that have used them, which would you recommend and is there a real difference between brands?
I've only had a few minutes with the jelly types but I prefer those for teaching packing/wrapping mechanically. I bought the Z-Medica and NAR trainers for packing/TQ training on my last deployment and they were ok. Skin texture was better on the NAR than the former.
We pooled our money and bought the Phokus cube from RE and it worked great! Trashed it by the 3rd iteration though, but 19 year olds will do that.
On another note, if you need to teach RSI, the Laerdal heads are the best I've seen. Teeth could be more realistic, ditto for vocal cords but it works for getting the rhythm down.
