THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF PRESSURE THANKS TO A FLEXIBLE VELCRO SYSTEM

Do you treat and care for intensive-care patients, have to protect a patient from injury during an episode of delirium or brief reactive psychosis, or work in a psychiatric ward? The quick and easy stabilisation and patient-friendly restraint can protect you and your patient.

The thorax belt is guided beneath the underarms and stabilises your patient by overlapping in the area behind the neck. This method, in combination with the soft microfibre material, makes possible its application immediately after surgery. Thanks to the flexible and stable Velcro straps, the belt can also be used for de-escalation purposes in various nursing and medical scenarios. It can be fastened to all usual intensive care and nursing beds.

ThoraXsafe® should only be used under supervision. The belt system serves as a supplement to the four-point restraint and for fall prevention.

Possible uses as:

  • Thorax belt

 

Further information about ThoraXsafe and the different application possibilities can be found in the product folder.
