The Posey General Purpose Belt helps keep patients from causing harm to themselves and others by keeping them restrained to beds or gurneys. The belt closures help secure patients who "buck" while in restraints. Bucking can cause damage to the person being restrained if there is no way to hold them down; by providing restraint to a person that is prone to bucking, you reduce the possible risk of injuries to self or to others.
The Gurney Style Posey Restraint Belt can be secured with the steel frame of the gurney, the strap will go under the frame to allow a snug and safe fit to the bed without the risk of coming loose. The strap, much like the Posey Bed Style Restraint, can be applied around the chest, waist, or leg position in bed -- they are placed in crucial points to prevent the restrained person from having the ability to force themselves up. If you are needing a restraint for a wheelchair user, you may be interested in the Posey Soft Belt.
Many facilities, such as medical hospitals, correctional facilities, and psychiatric hospitals depend on assisting those who can hurt themselves if they are not fastened. With a hook and loop type closure, you gain two things that can benefit you and your staff while using the restraint. The first being how quickly you can fasten the belt -- no need to mess with notches on a belt, simply apply the belt to itself and press firmly to allow the hook and loop closure to secure it. The second benefit is the fully adjustable design on the belt, which does not have a preset weight measurement, unlike notched belts.
With the one-size-fits-all feature of the belt, you can expect to use the restraint whenever it is needed. With constant use comes constant contamination. The belt is machine washable and can be dried by machine also, so you will always be ready when the need arises to protect those deemed a danger to themselves.
