Wrist/Ankle Restraint – Easy Release
- Important Information
The Wrist/Ankle Restraint – Easy Release is a quick and easy release restraint. It can be applied to a patient in a hurry.
This restraint is designed with a padded cuff. The webbing can be wrapped under an Ambulance Trolley at normal height.
When the Trolley is put into the Ambulance, the length of the webbing can be adjusted when the Trolley is secured for transport.
Place the Restraint around the patient’s wrist or ankle, and do up the double Hook & Loop Tape. Then secure the webbing around the bed or trolley frame.
To stop people from sliding down the bed, secure one wrist near the top of the bed, and the other wrist next to the hip. It may be possible to alternate the arm restrained near the top of the bed. When securing the ankles, wrap the webbing around the end of the bed frame. This is to stop the patient from kicking or sliding up the bed.
