Considerations

Information from Pelican Manufacturing's website

It is also possible to use the Leg Warmer as a Lap Belt restraint, by securing the webbing around the chair frame at the pelvic area. An advantage of securing around the chair frame is to remind patients not to stand up when their feet are in the pocket. If used as a restraint it should be fully documented on the care plan, but remember the Leg Warmer is not designed to prevent patients sliding down chairs. However, when the patient's feet touch the bottom of the Leg Warmer, they may think that they cannot slide down any more, and then they may feel more secure and stop sliding. See the warning below.

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.
