Airline Passenger Restraint

Designed specifically for the airline industry, the Airline Passenger Restraint Device consists of heavy-duty, rip-stop nylon mesh fabric that allows for total air flow.

This airline passenger restraint device is reinforced with automotive-grade seat belt material to provide superior strength and to restrict upper body movement.

Clips on the Velcro wrist straps and integrated, reinforced D-Rings allow for quick, simple restraint of the arms.  8 sewn-in D-Rings accommodate a range of arm lengths.

The Airline Passenger Restraint is lightweight and small to store so that it can be made readily accessible and easy to apply to an unruly passenger.

Five 2″ wide, adjustable nylon straps wrap across the patient, and with the help of hook and loop fasteners, allows for fast and easy “secure and release”.

The 5th Point Restraint helps clinical staff members manage patients who are agitated, disoriented, or incapable of supporting themselves in a sitting position.

It is also useful to prevent patients from leaving the hospital until they can be medically treated.

The 5th Point Restraint resulted from years of experience and research.  Input was provided by experienced Peace Officers and Nurses who deal with non-compliant patients. 

The result uses a simple to apply, strong, secure solution that is comfortable for the patient.  It uses breathable materials and because it is designed for one-time use, no cleaning is required.

Octo Strap

The Octo Strap Restraint System accomodates a wide range of portability and storage needs, making it arguably the best patient immobilization system in the world. 

It is especially convenient for use in remote regions such as battlefields and hiking where immobilization and emergency transport may be necessary.

The straps are stored and carried in a portable pouch.  Although they are designed for use with the Octo Board, they can be used with makeshift support options.

Adjustable strap lengths accomodate both small and large patients, and use side-release buckles to provide increased strength and durability compared to velcro.

And because neither the Octo Straps, nor Octo Board contain metallic material, they can be used with X-Ray or MRI machines to diagnose an immobilized patient and avoid the need for transfer to an alternative platform.

The Octo Strap System was developed by and is manufactured by Gillen Industries in the USA.

Hobble Restraint

The Hobble Restraint minimizes the ambulatory mobility of a restrained patient, while allowing them to walk/hobble.

When used in combination with the Ambulatory Belt Restraint, a patient can remain mobile enough to be escorted while their extremeties remain safely and humanely restricted.

D-rings allow straps to be attached to a bed or stretcher (straps sold separately).

The Ambulatory Belt Restraint is supplied with two Universal Keys and it is machine washable.

A pelvic strap prevents the patient from pulling the jacket over their head.
