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.

Chair Cleaning Instructions
The SoftGuard Medical Safety Restraint Chair™ will need to be cleaned and sanitized after being used, and we recommend mixing one cup (8 fl. oz.) of bleach with one gallon of hot water. You can use this solution on the chair frame and all straps. As an alternative, any hospital appropriate bleach wipe can be substituted.
