Devon Air Ambulance moves over to Lifecast
Devon Air Ambulance have recently invested in a full family of Lifecast Manikins for their HEMS Education programmes.
We are incredibly Proud of this alliance, as Dave and Rob both spent their careers in SWAST and have enjoyed watching the growth of the Aircrew and Air operations over the years.
Dr Alok Sharma - Indian support
Dr Alok Sharma - Neonatal Consultant from Southampton - recently took his Lifecast Baby with indian Sub Continent Ethnicity on his lecture tour through India.
We are always glad to support Dr Alok and his vision for saving Babies through enhanced education.
Developing different Ethnicities
As we continue to add distributors around the world we are continuing to 3d scan people to make into manikins.
As we do so we are very lucky to have developed new ethnicities.. Afro Caribbean, Caucasian, Asian and Indian Sub-Continent
If you have any ideas about new products please drop us a line...

More Babies - A New Challenge
Smaller Babies by Demand -Working with one of the countries top Neonatologist, the team at Lifecast have embarked on a new project to produce a 26 week Pre-Term Baby with all the features of our ALS Baby - smaller airway that can be intubated and ventilated.
Working with The London Air Ambulance
Lifecast Body Simulation Ltd are currently working with The London Air Ambulance, The Royal Brompton Hospital and a blue chip medical device company on some exciting new projects.
Our Lifecast design team are working with Neonatologists, Intensive Care Consultants, Surgeons and designers of Medical devices.
Designing a bespoke Manikin for SMACC
One of the greatest challenges set to the team at Lifecast was to build a manikin specifically for the SMACC (Social Media and Critical Care) team.
The process involved 3d scanning (in Australia), 3D printing in UK, mould making, manikin design, Lifecasting a young lady in the UK, head and core manufacture, Internal anatomy design, external anatomy finishing, hair punching and a whole host of other skills.
Ethnicities and Medical Education
The team at Lifecast have been trying to address the inequalities of cultural differences in medical manikins.
We are constantly frustrated by the lack of cultural differences in the medical simulation world.
We now produce Afro Caribbean, Caucasian and Indian Sub Continent manikins.
We have produced Asian Sub Continent and will continue to expand our range of Ethnicities.
Feedback on lifecast babies from retrieval teams
We are promoting the babies to Retrieval and Neonatal teams worldwide - with centres in UK, USA, Australia all preferring to use Realistic manikins for their medical education.
