Resquip Rescue Glide system

glide3The versatile, new generation Resquip modular glide mat system is easy to use, store, transport and assemble. Store and transport the high-density polyethylene glide mats flat and assemble them on site via two quick connectors. Mats have matching location holes on all four sides so the galvanised steel glide bar, which features a kick-up for riding over glide (640x452)rough terrain, can be attached and pulled on any side. If an animal is too big for a single mat, simply join two mats together.

The adjustable colour-coded Velcro straps allow you to package and transport any size sedated or anaesthetised animal from a small pony to large bull, irrespective of its medical condition. The straps make good use of the animal’s anatomy by distributing the load around (not over) the shoulder and hip, avoiding local pressure on the muscles while keeping the patient steady and preventing it sliding off the glide.

The standard Resquip rescue glide system consists of: a galvanised steel glide bar, two high density polyethylene glide mats 1.2 metres x 2.4 metres x 6 mm (a heavy duty version is also available if required), a set of tie-down straps, four singular hobbles (one for each leg), two additional connectors for joining mats together, and a test certificate. $2200 including GST, plus freight.

Resquip Rescue training mannequins

The horse mannequin mimics joint articulation, muscle definition and tone of a live horse, helping the customer to train using a model as close to the real thing as possible. The horse is virtually watertight and his legs lock, enabling him to stand unsupported on land or in water or mud. Lifting and pulling eyes on his back and under his belly enable easy placement into challenging scenarios.

The horse mannequin is made from a high quality, abrasion resistant polymer built around a laser precision-cut metal skeleton. All exposed metalwork is galvanised to increase resistance to corrosion. The mannequin stands on a castor trolley with the option to upgrade to a pneumatic wheeled trolley for use on more challenging terrain at a cost of £250.

£7100 plus £400 freight from the UK to Australia (includes £250 for the upgraded trolley). For further information contact MaryAnne Leighton, Asia Pacific distributor of Resquip rescue training equipment, 0429 119 084 maryanne-leighton@bigpond.com

cow11 smThe cow mannequin offers realistic joint movement, optional removable horns to make students aware of horned bulls, and a realistic udder. The cow is designed for Large Animal Rescue, but the internal metalwork can incorporate organs for Artificial Insemination practise if required.

£8400 plus £400freight from the UK to Australia. For further information contact MaryAnne Leighton, Asia Pacific distributor of Resquip rescue training equipment, 0429 119 084 maryanne-leighton@bigpond.com

Nikopoulos Needle

Nik needle croppedActing in a similar fashion to a suture or upholstery needle, the Nikopoulos needle guides rescue straps around the torso of an animal trapped in mud, water or a confined space, significantly reducing the length of time taken for the rescue and thus the stress on the horse.

The Nikopoulos needle is a two-metre length of 3/4″ stainless steel tubing bent to follow the curve of a horse’s girth / abdomen. It has a 25mm Storz connector at one end with small holes towards the other end where there is a loop for attaching a pilot line or rescue strap.

In a mud rescue, pumping air or water through the holes in the Nikopoulos needle creates a path through mud that facilitates the needle’s passage.
