BENEFITS

Mobility

Unlike wrist restraints that require RNs to move the patient , ExersidesTM allows patients to perform their own Active Range of Motion!

Visualization

Unlike with mitt restraints, staff can monitor the hand and wrist areas for circulation, color changes, edema, IV and arterial line integrity!

Access

Unlike with mitt restraints, staff can perform fingersticks, capillary refill checks, back of hand IVs and families can hold hands!

Edema

Unlike wrist and mitt restraints that can cut off circulation if a patient develops edema, ExersidesTM will loosen around the wrist!

Cognition

Unlike restraints that cause agitation, ExersidesTM allows non-agitated movement so sedation can be minimized!

Dignity and Compassion

ExersidesTM allows patients not to be automatically strapped down and sedated  'just in case'. More family interaction!
