If it's a faculty member that I know, I do not have a problem with it. And I probably would not go with the mannequin unless the other faculty does not know how to use it. Then I would operate the system. I guess I would need to know the purpose/objectives, the length of time, date/time and the faculty.

 Our IStan is made to be portable, however he weighs 250 #'s and cannot easily sit in a wheelchair/car. I have a good relationship with our EMS faculty and they use an old EMS gurney and van to transport the mannequin for me. I have taken our mannequin to health fairs, schools and other buildings without any difficulty. I do not have a formal policy on this.
