Abstract

Within our research, the human body plays a central role. The human body is one of the most visually fascinating shapes, but our research goes further. We focus on the dynamic aspects of the body regarding interaction. Within this
paper, we focus on the creation of manikins for the training of chest compressions, which is an essential procedure compressions, which is an essential procedure during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). We expect that the same techniques can be deployed for manikins in different applicational fields, such as fashion dummies, toys, and artistic installations. Within medical simulation, it is important that manikins have realistic anatomical and physiological properties. By embedding these properties, a more realistic tactile experience can be created. From our findings, we conclude that additive manufacturing materials have a broad mechanical stiffness range, with the potential to mimic that of the neonatal rib cage.
