Thermal Manikin - Submersible - Nemo/Shemo

Using a submersible manikin eliminates the risk to human subjects

Thermal manikin performance in a waterproof shell

NEMO is a fully submersible thermal manikin system designed to operate underwater at depths of up to 10 feet (3 meters) for testing the thermal properties of dive suits, marine survival gear, and other protective garments made to perform in direct contact with water.

The NEMO manikin features a sealed and true-weight aluminum shell with waterproof joints and 21 independent thermal zones. The manikin is constructed with a weight balance that permits realistic floating for more accurate human simulations in an aquatic environment.

NEMO's Specs

  • Standard model features 22 independent thermal zones.
  • Ultra-stable heating elements provide uniform heat flux
  • Thermistor temperature sensors distributed across each zone
  • Sealed aluminum shell with waterproof joints
