Respirator Testing Head Form


As our mother company, Crawley Creatures Ltd, we were approached to develop an anatomically accurate, articulated head form that could accurately emulate detailed lip, jaw and neck movements whilst reciting a length of prose known as the "Rainbow Passage". This device is employed by a UK military research facility to evaluate the integrity of seals during the development and testing stages of new respirators.


 Notable features of the system include:

  • 13 axes of motion including multiple lip points, jaw opening and jutting and swallow throat movement.
  • Highly accurate repeatable testing.
  • Breathing Machine connectivity.
  • Hydraulically adjustable skull to adapt to various mask sizes.
  • Anatomically correct, contoured, silicone skin to provide realistic locus points for seals.
  • Variable skin thickness mapped to the human face.
