A reanimator has a pad about the size of a playing card, and slots on the end of a power pack.  It revives someone who’s been knocked out by a stun-gun, a nerve-gun or a blow to the head (if it’s not too hard).  If the person is drugged, or more seriously hurt, a reanimator won’t revive them.

On our first few missions, I wished I’d brought a reanimator, so now I carry one all the time.

The reanimator was one of the devices that Criski showed Vosh and me.  See Report G2.
