Laerdal started life as a producer of children’s plastic toys and books, with their Anne dolls popular throughout Europe. It was their pioneering work in soft rubber that laid the groundwork for them producing one of the first resuscitation manikins, which would ultimately, change the course of the company.

Forward-wind nearly eighty years and Laerdal are at the cutting edge of CPR technology; not only empowering instructors with increasingly accurate and objective performance feedback, not just creating confident and competent community lifesavers but even adding in a gaming element, with their CPR race!

“At the core of all our activities is our mission, helping save lives. Our partnership with RLSS UK is a great example of how we can achieve this. Our developments in CPR technology are only effective when applied.  We look forward to continuing to save more lives together,” said Gareth Patrickson, Managing Director, Laerdal Medical UK.
