Medical Mannequins

I have worked in the NHS for 22 years and I have genuinely never seen a Non White Medical Mannequin. Surely this should be changed to be more reflective of our society. Thoughts?

I thiiiink i saw some more mannequin diversity when I was interning on a video shoot at the Birmingham Uni medical.school. The individuality made them look really freaky deaky

I don’t thing they’re particularly realistic regardless but I can see how it could be alienating. Make them all blue and give the gammons something else to moan about for a while?

I read that article a few months ago too. It’s interesting. Wonder how the Shell suit became a thing though!? She always wears a shell suit!

I had to give CPR to one in front of everybody in my first aid class I hated it (though the experience was unrelated to the colour, but blue is a good idea, like they do with piss and blood in nappy/tampon ads)
