The Act+Fast Anti Choking Trainer is a one-of-a-kind simulation device that instructors use to realistically teach the Abdominal Thrust Maneuver (Heimlich). Its design is simple yet effective. It is a lightweight neoprene vest worn by students that allows teaching of the Abdominal Thrust Maneuver in a variety of realistic scenarios. When correct hand placement and technique are used, a soft foam plug shoots dramatically from the trainer, instantly providing a strong visual feedback that students will never forget.
Act+Fast's hands-on training approach allows students to practice their technique until they master it, in addition to testing their skills in various choking rescue scenarios, such as self-rescue and victim rescue. Abdominal Thrusts can be practiced on the Anti Choking Trainer while the user is standing, sitting, or lying down. There are two protocol models available: Act+Fast Red with a Back Slap Pad, for the Red Cross Protocol and Act+Fast Blue for the AHA Protocol.
