"Have you ever had to work with an unconscious patient during a code, or maybe fighting the arms of a patient that tries to pull out your IV's or ET tube, or just trying to move a patient to your unit with flaccid arms, it seem like they get caught in everything possible. I know how it feels, as an EMT/Paramedic l''ve been there many times, but no more, with the Emergency Medical Restraint placed on our Fire Rescue, working with these patients has gotten a lot easier, they secure the wrist and positions the arms so i can move the patient, start IV's take B/P's and not worry about the arms falling off the back boards, pulling out IV's or if the patient becomes combative my ET Tube remains secure. If you need an extra set of hands, try the EMR, its great."

The Safe-GarD EMR Securing Device within the emergency medical field that address difficulties both the Paramedic and the EMTs face during the treatment and movement of patients that have lost control of their upper extremities
When caring for patients with flaccid upper extremities, their arms and hands easily become entangled in obstacles such as Doorways, Furniture, Medical and Fire equipment or other unforeseen objects.
These patients include the cardiac arrest, unconscious-unresponsive, drug overdose or combative patients due to a medical or traumatic incident.
These entanglements restrict the medical treatment, patient transportation, cause accidental pulling or dislodging of airway adjuncts, IV tubing, monitor, pacer, defibrillation cables, and other necessary ALS equipment needed for patient care.
Unnecessary injury and safety hazards are also a concern to the patient or healthcare provider due to entanglements, exposure to bloodborne products, combative head injuries, or post-code and overdose situations; where the patients become combative in response to emergency treatment and medications.
The design of the Safe-GarD EMRSecuring Device draws the upper extremities into a center midline position on the patient, which protects hands, arms and wrist from all possible obstacles. This enhances overall patient care, facilitate easier moving and loading. The primary goal of the Safe-GarD EMR Securing Device is to provide everyone with a "Safe Scene"
