- Important Information
The Velour Mitts are quick and easy to put on a patient.
The Mitt allows the patient to open and close their fingers, but due to the foam padding, it is difficult to scratch or pick up objects.
Cut or mechanically punch ventilation holes into the material for better air circulation. Place the holes on the back of the hand near the wrist. This is so that the patient’s fingers do not reach near the holes.
Please see the Important Information tab which includes General Public Restraint Authorisation information.

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.
General Public Restraint Authorisation Letter: Because this product is restraint, we require authorisation from an Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapist, Clinical Nurse Manager, Registered Nurse, Doctor, or other suitably qualified person, to ensure it will be used correctly and safely by the family and/or carers. This letter is not required when we send restraints to aged care facilities or hospitals because their staff are already training in their safe use.
