SoftGuard® Medical Safety Restraint Chair

The SoftGuard® Medical Safety Restraint Chair is intended to protect patients who are in medical and behavioral health environments that need to be restrained because they are at risk of hurting themselves or the medical staff. If used properly it can reduce the risk of physical harm to both. Violent behavior may mask dangerous medical conditions; therefore patients must be monitored for and provided with medical treatment if needed. Patients should not be left in the SoftGuard® Medical Safety Restraint Chair for more than two hours. The SoftGuard® Medical Safety Restraint Chair should never be used as a means of punishment.
