The ongoing development is the highly versatile PINEL System that is able to address every conceivable restraint requirement through the use of universal items based on a common patented locking system.


The comfortable waist restraint system is the heart of the Pinel De-restraint system and the eventual goal for all patients who need to be restrained. It allows the patient to roll in all directions and sit up in bed. When the patient is given access to the unlocking key it becomes the ideal "passive" restraint. It is easy to handle, adjust, and wash. And you can provide additional security with specially designed attachments. For example, by attaching a limb restraint to the waist restraint, you can restrict one arm of a tube-pulling patient, yet still permit self-feeding.

COMPONENTS: 1 X Waist belt; 2X Side straps; 3 X Keys; 1 X Button/Pin; 2 X Button/Pin/Lanyard

One of the most useful attachments to the waist restraint is the side strap. When a side strap is attached, a patient can be restricted from rolling to one side or can be held in position for treatment. The straps can also act as safety belts, maintaining the patient centered in the bed. In a chair, used as a "crotch" strap, the side strap prevents the patient from sliding down. With the limb restraints the side straps can be used as strap extenders or reinforcement restraints.

Technical Specifications:

USE: As General Utility strap. Used to position patient or as a pelvic strap in Chair to prevent downward slide. Used as extension straps.
COMPONENTS: 1 X Side strap.
