Lap/Shoulder Sash Belt
Item # SM402 (buckle fastening)
Item # SM403 (velcro fastening)RESTRAINTS & SAFETY ITEMS

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.

Items such as the Bed Side Wedges, Bed Side Bumpers and Bed Rail Protectors are a 'perimeter' type of Restraint that provides a barrier to reduce patient's movement without using a Restraint Belt. These items still need authorisation from a qualified therapist or medical doctor.

The Stand-Up Alarms, Bed Fall Mats, etc., are not Restraints as they do not restrict the patient's movement and therefore it is not necessary to have written authorisation, although we strongly suggest that the use of these Safety Items should be discussed with a qualified person.

Hip Protectors can sometimes reduce the need for a Restraint, as the patient can still walk, but with some protection over their hips, so if they fall, the Greater Trochanter may not be broken. If the Greater Tronchanter is damaged in a fall, the patient may then need a wheelchair, hoist transfers and additional care until they have a hip replacement operation. Authorisation is not necessary, but we still recommend discussing these with a medically qualified person

To help prevent patients falling from chairs or to position their hips correctly on pressure cushions. For use on wheelchairs, dining chairs and some armchairs. This belt is fitted to the chair and normally remains in position on the chair when it is vacated. Special sizes can be made on request for use on larger chairs.

The shorter part of the belt with the female buckle should be lassoed around through the strap loop around the chair frame near to the pelvic area. The longer part of the belt with the male buckle is lassoed around the other side of the chair on the opposite pelvic area. When the patient is sitting in position, the buckle should be on the side of the patient. The belt can be adjusted to size by moving the longer webbing through the male buckle. Squeeze the side release buckle to undo the belt. The Velcro version simply does up by fastening the Velcro together.

WARNING - If the patient plays with or twists the buckle, this can increase the size across the waist. If the belt is too loose, it may be possible for the patient to slide off the chair. As the buckle would still be done up this could be dangerous. Should the patient slide completely off the chair they could strangle themselves. Do not use this belt with any patient who cannot understand the correct use of the belt.

WARNING - Only use a Safety Belt or Restraint if all other alternatives have been tried. Ensure Restraint Authorisation has been obtained. Restrained patients should be kept under observation, as their behaviour may alter and another restraint may be more appropriate. Restraints are a prescribed item. The wrong restraint or the correct restraint incorrectly fitted can cause injury or death.

Washing: Hand or machine wash only, up to 80C. Do not tumble dry or wring - air dry only.

Soft Belt Restraint
Soft Belt is made from soft strong 50 mm wide webbing with a wide padded section to provide a soft area against the patient's body. The padded section should be placed across the lap. However, as some patients may rock or lean forward it may be possible to place the padded section across the chest. Do not use across the chest if the patient is liable to slide down the chair. Some patients feel more secure with this wide soft belt instead of a more discrete webbing belt. This belt is not recommended for patients who slide down the chair. For this behaviour we recommend that the Chair Belt for Sliders is also used as well as the Soft Belt.

To Fit: Place the padded section in front of the patient and wrap the webbing around the chair frame on both sides, either at the pelvic position or behind the back of the chair and fasten the buckle behind the chair. As the Soft Belt can be used on large lounge chairs, it may be necessary on narrower chairs, to wrap the surplus webbing a few times around the chair frame to take up the extra webbing.

WARNING - Only use a Safety Belt or Restraint if all other alternatives have been tried. Ensure Restraint Authorisation has been obtained. Restrained patients should be kept under observation, as their behaviour may alter and another restraint may be more appropriate. Restraints are a prescribed item. The wrong restraint or the correct restraint incorrectly fitted can cause injury or death.

Chair/Lap Belt Shoulder Strap
Chair Belt Item 401 or Lap Belt Item SM402.
The straps are designed to help patient's balance. The patient can easily remove the straps off their shoulders if they wish, so we do not suggest this item is used on its own as a restraint. It should be used in conjunction with a lap-type restraint.
The loops on the end of the two long straps should be placed on the front of the Chair Belt or Lap Belt. They can either go straight over the patient's shoulders, like braces or be crossed over the chest. This method may be helpful when a patient tends to lean more to one side.
The long single strap with the Male buckle attached should be taken down the back of the chair and around one of the rear legs, across to the other rear leg and back up to fit into the Female part of the buckle. When adjusting the straps to take up any excess material, try not to make the straps too tight. The patient should have enough space to lean forward to just before the vertical position, so when they relax, they will fall back into the chair and not forward, suspended from the straps. As patients vary in their behaviour, this method may be altered for individual patients. If the patient is wearing a jumper, cardigan or jacket, put the straps under the clothing so the only part to be seen would be where the straps go over the shoulders. The straps look and work better on low back chairs. Active patients may require our Safety Vest or Posture Pinnie. Please FreeCall 1800 641 577 if you have any queries about this product.
WARNING - Only use a Safety Belt or Restraint if all other alternatives have been tried. Ensure Restraint Authorisation has been obtained. Restrained patients should be kept under observation, as their behaviour may alter and another restraint may be more appropriate. Restraints are a prescribed item. The wrong restraint or the correct restraint incorrectly fitted can cause injury or death.

SM412 
Chair Belt For Sliders Front Fastening
This belt helps prevent patients from sliding down chairs to the floor. The patient can freely move their legs, twist around and even try to stand up, but the belt should prevent them from sliding or standing.

The belt is fitted around the chair and buckles together in front. On the Rear Fastening version (which is more popluar as it means patients cannot play with the buckles) the two padded leg straps are then positioned under the legs, passed through the waist loops, wrapped around the frame of the chair at the pelvic area and then buckled up behind the chair, adjusting to size.

The belt is long enough to use on lounge chairs. However, on narrower chairs it may be beneficial to wrap the surplus webbing around the frame to shorten the webbing. This helps secure the belt at the 'pelvic position' either side of the hips.

If ladies are wearing the belt, it is better for them to be wearing trousers rather than a dress. Patients should always be monitored when wearing any safety item and if the belt or leg straps appear to be putting pressure around the patient, or under the legs, the patient should be repositioned to relieve this pressure.

WARNING - Only use a Safety Belt or Restraint if all other alternatives have been tried. Ensure Restraint Authorisation has been obtained. Restrained patients should be kept under observation, as their behaviour may alter and another restraint may be more appropriate. Restraints are a prescribed item. The wrong restraint or the correct restraint incorrectly fitted can cause injury or death.

The belt & straps can be hand or machine washed. Do up buckles before machine washing.

SM430 
Shower Belt Restraint
Item # SM430 (standard beige vinyl)
Item # SM431 (white nylon - for humid conditions)
The Shower Belt is made from beige nylon reinforced plastic covered material, sewn around a soft foam padding. The belt can be wiped dry between patients. Item 431 is made with a breathable white nylon fabric outer cover. This is to allow any seepage of moisture to fully dry, particularly suitable in humid tropical climates.
The Shower Belt and Shoulder Straps provide extra help to nursing staff when patients are slippery and wet whilst being washed. Staff should be available at all times to monitor their use.
The Shower Belt is used on commode chairs, mainly when showering. Place the belt centrally behind the chair and wrap both ends around the frame at the pelvic position on both sides of the chair. The Velcro sections can then be fastened together across the patient's lap.
If the patient is liable to open the Velcro, use the belt in the opposite way, with the belt across the patient's lap, wrap around the frame at the pelvic position and fasten the Velcro together behind the chair. On larger patients, it may not be possible to secure the belt on the sides or on one side only.
WARNING - Only use a Safety Belt or Restraint if all other alternatives have been tried. Ensure Restraint Authorisation has been obtained. Restrained patients should be kept under observation, as their behaviour may alter and another restraint may be more appropriate. Restraints are a prescribed item. The wrong restraint or the correct restraint incorrectly fitted can cause injury or death.

SM433 
Shower Belt With Leg Straps
The Shower Belt with Leg Straps is like the Chair Belt for Sliders a restraint used to ensure the patient cannot slide or 'submarine' down a chair. The belt can be wiped dry between patients.

This belt will help prevent patients from sliding down shower chairs or commodes, on to the floor. The patient can freely move their legs, twist around and even try to stand up. This belt should help prevent them from sliding or standing.

The belt is fitted around the chair and Velcros together behind the patient. The two leg straps are then positioned under the legs and buckled up. When fitting the leg straps, it is neater to pass the straps between the legs, under and up the outside of the leg. By fitting this way, after adjusting the buckles, the surplus webbing will be on the outside of the leg. It may be beneficial to wrap any excess of the lap belt around the frame of narrower chairs to help position the belt at the pelvic position, either side of the hips.

Patients should always be monitored when wearing any safety item and if the lap belt or leg straps appear to be putting pressure around the patient, or under the legs, the patient should be repositioned to relieve this pressure. The belt and straps can be hand or machine washed. We recommend doing the buckles up before machine washing.

SM422 
Soft Bed Belt Restraint

The Soft Bed Belt has a soft padded section that is placed across the patient's waist. The webbing on the left of the padding should be put behind the patient's back, and be threaded through the webbing loop sewn onto the right side webbing. The webbing on the right should also go behind the patient's back and threaded through the webbing loop sewn onto the left side webbing. Make sure the webbing is flat against the patient's back, so when they lie down the webbing will not cause a pressure problem.

When the patient is lying down in bed, put the male buckles down between the base of the bed and the bed rail, on both sides of the bed. Slide the 'female' parts of the buckles down the webbing so they are just above the side rails. Wrap the webbing around the rails a few times, to keep the patient in the middle of the bed. Do the buckles up, adjusting the webbing belt to size. It is not necessary to do the belt up too tight, so double check to see if it is comfortable, ensuring that the patient cannot put their hands or arms under the belt. When positioning a patient on their side, or after turning, you may lengthen the webbing to ensure the belt is not too tight.

If the patient slides up or down the bed, or if they sit up and put their legs over the side of the bed, the belt will automatically gently tighten around them to prevent them from moving too far. When attending to the patient during the night, test that the belt is still comfortable around the patient. On request, padded Leg Straps can be added as an extra security to prevent the belt moving up the patient's body. Have the bed rails raised when using this item.

WARNING - Bed Safety is very important and continual monitoring is needed to ensure the correct item is being used. If there is a change in the patient's behaviour it may be necessary to use an alternative product. Contact us on FreeCall 1800 645 577 or FreeFax 1800 641 477 to discuss other 'Bed Safety' items we make.

WARNING - Only use a Safety Belt or Restraint if all other alternatives have been tried. Ensure Restraint Authorisation has been obtained. Restrained patients should be kept under observation, as their behaviour may alter and another restraint may be more appropriate. Restraints are a prescribed item. The wrong restraint or the correct restraint incorrectly fitted can cause injury or death.

Washing: Hand or machine wash only, up to 80C. Do not tumble dry or wring - air dry only.

Items such as the Bed Side Wedges, Bed Side Bumpers and Bed Rail Protectors are a 'perimeter' type of Restraint that provides a barrier to reduce patient's movement without using a Restraint Belt. These items still need authorisation from a qualified therapist or medical doctor.

The Stand-Up Alarms, Bed Fall Mats, etc., are not Restraints as they do not restrict the patient's movement and therefore it is not necessary to have written authorisation, although we strongly suggest that the use of these Safety Items should be discussed with a qualified person.

Hip Protectors can sometimes reduce the need for a Restraint, as the patient can still walk, but with some protection over their hips, so if they fall, the Greater Trochanter may not be broken. If the Greater Tronchanter is damaged in a fall, the patient may then need a wheelchair, hoist transfers and additional care until they have a hip replacement operation. Authorisation is not necessary, but we still recommend discussing these with a medically qualified person.

Cubitus Fossa/ Elbow Splint
Used mainly in the Accident/Emergency Departments, the Elbow Splint is a very quick and easy way to prevent the elbow from bending, but still allows access to the veins for inserting drips etc.

The Elbow Splint is made from strong aluminium to be comfortable against the skin. It is easy to clean with removable Velcro type fastening.

Adjustment can be made for different arm sizes by fastening around the main frame of the splint.

WARNING - Only use a Safety Belt or Restraint if all other alternatives have been tried. Ensure Restraint Authorisation has been obtained. Restrained patients should be kept under observation, as their behaviour may alter and another restraint may be more appropriate. Restraints are a prescribed item. The wrong restraint or the correct restraint incorrectly fitted can cause injury or death.

SM262S 
Mitts Lined with Breathable Cotton Lining
These Mitts are smaller than the standard Velour Mitts (Item # SM262) and are made from two materials quilted together.

The outer Velour material is soft so if the patient rubs themselves it should not harm the skin. The special breathable cotton inner lining prevents sweating.

A Velcro fastening secures the Mitt around the wrist.

Mits Velour Soft Padded Foam not lined
This item is 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.

If the patient's hand is too hot inside the Mitt, ventilation holes can be punched into the material. Place the holes on the back of the hand near the wrist, so that the patient's fingers do not reach near the holes.

WARNING - Only use a Safety Belt or Restraint if all other alternatives have been tried. Ensure Restraint Authorisation has been obtained. Restrained patients should be kept under observation, as their behaviour may alter and another restraint may be more appropriate. Restraints are a prescribed item. The wrong restraint or the correct restraint incorrectly fitted can cause injury or death.

SM497 
Safety Vest Vented with Leg Straps
SM499 for Small Size.
Item # SM499 (small - vented, maroon)
Item # SM497 (large - vented, blue)

This Safety Vest is designed for the type of patient who needs extra security that cannot be provided with other Safety Items. It is based on a sleeveless pullover design with a shoulder strap and two leg straps, that will help prevent the vest from riding up from around the patient's waist, as well as helping to prevent them from sliding down chairs or beds.

The webbing straps are long enough for large lounge chairs and can be reduced for use on wheelchairs. Different colour webbing is used for the shoulder and leg straps so when doing them up, they will easily be identified. When dressing the patient, make sure the Leg Straps are in front of the patient, so they can be placed under each leg. Thread the leg webbing through the leg loops, before fastening the webbing to the chair or bed. The Leg and Shoulder straps should be wound around the chair frame as many times as possible before fastening together.

When using in bed, wrap shoulder and leg straps on both sides, around the bed frame as many times as possible before fastening. Take the straps lower down the bed than the patient's shoulders to prevent them wriggling up the bed. The leg straps should be wrapped around the bed frame higher than the groin to prevent the patient sliding down the bed.

Also consider other alternatives such as the Zip-A-Bed or the Bed Fall Mats.

WARNING - Only use a Safety Belt or Restraint if all other alternatives have been tried. Ensure Restraint Authorisation has been obtained. Restrained patients should be kept under observation, as their behaviour may alter and another restraint may be more appropriate. Restraints are a prescribed item. The wrong restraint or the correct restraint incorrectly fitted can cause injury or death.

Hand or machine wash only, up to 80C. Do not tumble dry or wring - air dry only.


Frequently Asked Questions

Which material is stronger and why have two types?Some people prefer a vented material, some people prefer a polyester material. The vented material is cooler but from testing we have done is it not as strong as the polyester. Although it is not as strong, both types are suitable for the design of this item.
