The first phase of a scientific research programme being led by NARU into reviewing the rinse-wipe-rinse non-ambulant decontamination process is now complete.
Project SILUS was run by Professor Rob Chilcott and the University of Hertfordshire and centred on a detailed analysis of the decon process using mannequins and simulant agent.
The review resulted in a reduction from 12mins down to a 5mins turnaround cycle.
The next phase of the project is to validate the data with live subjects and phase 3 will then look at what IOR looks like for non-ambulant casualties.
