'After his wife died of cancer Anthony wanted to devote his life to helping sick people, so he started studying again. Now he is a proud nurse in Christchurch hospital, working on the oncology wards. In his free time he loves taking long walks with his dog. He was found unconscious and raced to the hospital .'
Anthony has a punched-in beard and moustache to create an extra challenge for ventilation.
MEDICFX facial overlays, are created with a very soft and durable Silicone. They are designed to fit most manikins; this particular face will fit best on the Laerdal Sim Man.
Each face has been hand-painted by our FX artists, to create an original and realistic design.
Our overlays have a convenient strap with Velcro at the back, so putting the face on the manikin is very easy. [no pulling over the manikin head is required] It is also less claustrophobic for SP.
MEDICFX facial overlays, add realism in your simulation training. Making scenarios more believable and engaging. It also assists with overcoming age, gender and racial bias.
Our facial overlays can be worn by Standard Patients as well, depending on the face shape of the wearer. Scenarios can be extended by moving from a SP to a manikin using the same facial overlay.
This product comes with:
We cater to custom designs and each face can be created in various skin tones, different wigs, and paintwork. We can add operable features to certain face designs as well.
Please treat the facial overlay as you would do any real human face.
Do NOT pull on any hair. The punched in beard is fragile so be careful with cleaning and wearing.
Store the face out of direct sunlight and in a cool environment.
You can brush the hair, but stay away from the very edge as these areas have been hairpunched and are fragile.
As Silicone is an oil based product, it may become a little shiny over time. Wipe off any oily residue with Isopropyl Alcohol. Dry with hairdryer. You can use the included translucent powder [cosmetic loose powder] and brush this over shiny areas.
Keep away from lips and eyes as we like to keep those glossy.
If, in the most unlikely case, you might need to repair the face, this can be done with a Silicone Repair kit.
The face can be washed with warm soapy water and disinfected with Iso Alcohol. If necessary the hair can be washed with warm water and a little shampoo/ conditioner, air dry or use a hairdryer on a low setting.
