Padded Wrist/Ankle Restraint
- Important Information
The Padded Wrist/Ankle Restraint is made to be quickly applied to a patient. We have designed it with a padded cuff that you can do up and undo again if the patient calms down. This way, they are not restrained when it is not necessary.
Place the Restraint around the patient’s wrist or ankle. Make sure to select the cuff size that provides a firm fit on the patient. Secure the webbing around the bed or trolley frame by wrapping around the frame and securing in an appropriate way.
To stop the patient from sliding down the bed, secure one wrist near the top of the bed and the other wrist near the hip area. If restraining for a long time, it may be possible to alternate the wrist restrained near the top of the bed. When securing the ankles, wrap the webbing around the end of the bed frame to stop the patient from kicking or sliding up the bed.
This product is sold as a pair.

Restraints are a prescribed item. Care Facilities such as Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Aged Care Facilities etc., may order this item. For private sales to a family member, written authorisation is needed from a qualified therapist or medical doctor, approving the use of the correct Restraint for the patient's current condition. Remember if the patient's condition changes, then a different type of Restraint may be required. It is necessary to ensure the family are aware of the proper use of Restraints, as these can be dangerous if not used correctly.
