'Practoplast' imitation wounds training kit, Norway, 1960-1985

Norwegian company Laerdal made this imitation wounds kit contained in a plastic case. It was intended for first aid training. The fake wounds are made of a flexible rubber substance called ‘practoplast’. After selecting the appropriate wound it would be attached to the skin of an ‘actor’ using an adhesive. The actor then played a wounded patient during an emergency scenario. The selection of wounds includes burns of varying degrees of severity, dog bites, fractures, a snake bite, cuts and a gunshot wound. The kit also contains fake blood and an instruction booklet for first aid training using the ‘practoplast’ wounds.
