Description

ANATOMICALLY CORRECT RAG DOLL This invention relates to an anatomically correct rag doll.

Rag dolls are a familiar play medium for children of all ages. Dolls can be used to facilitate leaming in schools, playgroups, hospitals and the home. With adult guidance the doll can be used to teach and provide information about the body in health and ill health. This doll can also be adapted to provide information about investigations, operations and invasive procedures in hospital.

This doll is made from soft cotton and felt materials and is therefore easily handled by children, is durable, easily washed, is fire resistant and has no parts that can harm children through inhalation or ingestion. <RTI>(AT</RTI> <RTI>ti)</RTI> The doll can be undone as the main body is semi-detachable with <RTI>velcrntarnund</RTI> either side and the base. Therefore the internal organs of the chest and abdomen can be viewed, removed and handled.

This doll can be created in different colours and with different features therefore it appeals to children of different cultural backgrounds and ages.

There are severat different versions of the same doll (Figure 1), which have been adapted for use in hospitals; figure 7 with a port-a-cath or hickman line and figure 8 with a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy.

A specific description of the invention will now be described by way of example with reference to the accompanying drawings in which Figure 1 Shows the doll in resting state.

Figure 2 Shows the doll opened with all organs inside.

(a) the respiratory system (b) the gastro-intestinal system (c) the renal system Figure 3 Shows the doll with a port-a-cath/hickman line Figure 4 Shows the doll with a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy.

The doll is a rag doll made from cotton material and stuffed with wadding. The arms and legs are solid and are attached to the seams of the back of the body permanently (Figure 1). The head is primarily two circular pieces of cotton sewn together and stuffed, with eyes and hair sewn on to the surface. A flap of material can be removed over the forehead to view the brain (Figure 2). The mouth and nostrils have been embroidered and holes have been cut in the material. A single material tube has been sewn inside the head, which attaches around the nose and mouth on the inside and then exits at the neck of the doll.

Therefore tubes can be passed down the nostril and mouth of the doll. The tubes exit through the net and then pass either into the trachea or oesophagus, whichever is appropriate.

The front and back of the chest and <RTI>abdomerZ,barestuffed</RTI> solidly but can be detached along the sides and base with <RTI>velcroland</RTI> the top lifted up towards the shoulders, covering the head, to reveal the <RTI>internal organs.</RTI> The intemal surface of the top of the body has a felt rib cage sewn on its surface. All the intemal organs are <RTI>mad fro..m</RTI> cotton and felt, have been stuffed and attached to each <RTI>other with velcrojln an anatomically correct fashion (Figure 2)</RTI> The oesophagus is a hollow piece of plastic tubing covered in material until it reaches the stomach where it becomes a three dimensional stuffed solid piece which is attached to the small and large intestines. The rectum is also a hollow tube covered in material attached to the large intestine. The anus is elasticated.

These hollow tubes allow procedures such as the introduction of tubes to the stomach and the rectum to be demonstrated (Figure 2b).

The kidneys, bladder, ureters and urethra are solid and detachable (Figure 2c).

There are no intemal or extemal reproductive organs or genitals.

The liver, pancreas and gallbladder are also solid and detachable (Figure 2b).

All of the intemal organs are different shades of red and pink; pink being the lungs and the stomach and burgundy being the liver. The heart is a solid detachable bright red organ (Figure 2a). Finally the trachea is the hollow tube covered with material. The trachea divides into bronchi and the two tubes become solid and lead to the lungs. One lung is solid and the other lung can be undone around three sides with press-studs to reveal intemal anatomy (Figure 2a).

The bronchial tubes are flat and made out of felt and sewn onto one surface of the lung. This facility can be used to explain the intemal oxygenation of the lungs and medical procedures/conditions affecting the respiratory system. The trachea and oesophagus are both open at the top and rest inside the neck opening at the head of the doll. The trachea and lungs rest on top of the oesophagus and gastrointestinal tract inside the doll.

The doll can take on different forms within the health care setting and can have an actual port-a-cath/hickman line in situ in the chest wall (Figure 3). This can be accessed via a needle and fluid can be injected and aspirated as the catheter is attached to a plastic reservoir hidden in the dolls back, accessed via a zip. This doll only contains the heart and lungs and the circulatory system of both can be viewed as the veins are blue and the arteries are red. The superior vena cava is hollow so that the child can see where the catheter is tunneled and rests after its insertion.

The doll, which demonstrates the gastrointestinal tract and the position of a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy, is visible in figure 4. The gastrostomy is in situ and a plastic window and is in the stomach wall so that the intemal aspects of the device are visible.

Claims (7)

1. An anatomically correct rag doll containing all the major intemal organs of the chest and abdomen.
2. An anatomically correct rag doll as claimed in claim 1, of which the body can be opened and all the intemal organs removed and handled by children for teaching purposes.
3. An anatomically correct rag doll as claimed in claim 1, of which the oesophagus and trachea are patent from the mouth and nose down to the stomach and lungs respectively so that tubes can be passed for teaching purposes.
4. An anatomically correct rag doll as claimed in claim 1, where the anus is elasticated and rectum patent so that tubes can be passed inside it for teaching purposes.
5. An anatomically correct rag doll as claimed in claim 1, which can be adapted for use in hospital and can have various medical devices such as gastrostomies, port-a-caths and hickman lines inserted.
6. An anatomically correct rag doll as claimed in claim 1, which is made from soft durable fire resistant materials and therefor easily handled by children and washed.
7. An anatomically correct rag doll as claimed in claim 1, substantially as described with reference to figures 1 to 4 of the accompanying drawings.
