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.
Described by the Journal of Emergency Medicine (JEMS) as, “one of the most innovative, functional and potentially lifesaving products to come onto the EMS market.”
Since its introduction in 2008, millions have learned Choking Rescue on the Anti Choking Trainer in over 50 countries.
