Arm restraints are an important feature of many special needs chairs. They help maintain a proper seated posture while also providing safety and security. Arm restraints can be used in a variety of settings including the home, classroom, or medical facility.
There are many different types of arm restraints available depending on the user’s needs and preferences. Some have a soft padding that is comfortable for long periods of sitting; others have no padding at all so they can be folded up when not in use.
Different types of restraints include those with Velcro straps, those that wrap around the entire armrest, and those that only go part way down one side (such as those used on airplanes).
Arm restraints are designed to keep children safe while they’re learning how to sit properly at home or school without falling out of their chair or hurting themselves as much as possible from being able to move around too much when they’re supposed to stay still during class or playtime! It can also help prevent falls if someone stands up too quickly and hits their head against something hard like a table edge instead because there isn’t anything blocking it from hitting any furniture pieces behind them like chairs do.”
A pair of arm restraints for special needs children. Made from a quality, woven cotton that is not only soft and comfortable for the child, but also easily washable, these arm restraints are useful for keeping children from scratching themselves or others, as well as from pulling at feeding tubes and other medical devices.
We have three different types of arm restraints, each with a different purpose. There are simple strap-on restraint, which are easy to use and can be put on the child in seconds. They are made from a strong but flexible material that will hold up for years and is hand washable. There are also wheelchair arm restraints that are specifically designed for children using wheelchairs. These come in two pieces, one for each side of the chair. They can easily be attached and removed from the wheelchair and will hold up over many years of use. Our third type of arm restraint is a one piece vest style restraint that wraps around the child’s upper torso and arms to keep them safely contained at all times. This is designed to be used when the child might try to remove other restraints or put themselves or others in danger by their actions.
Arm restraints can be used to prevent fidgeting, scratching, and other behaviors that are disruptive and possibly harmful. They are often used with children who have autism or ADHD and adults with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
Arm restraints can be made of soft material such as foam or fabric. They are typically attached with Velcro®, but some models may have buckles instead. The straps should fit snugly so they will not slip off the arms but not too tight that they cause discomfort.
The arm restraint attaches to the armrest and can be adjusted up or down to fit the needs of each user. The restraint is made with soft material for added comfort and durability, and it has a hook-and-loop closure that makes it easy to put on or take off.
Arm restraints come in many different styles including those with or without side wings and those with or without padding. Padded arm restraints are often more comfortable for the user and can provide additional support as needed. However, some individuals may prefer non-padded armrests to allow for increased freedom of movement. Some individuals may prefer non-padded armrests to allow for increased freedom of movement.
Armrests provide postural support by preventing the user from falling out of the chair and by keeping their upper body upright. When positioned correctly, armrests promote better breathing and circulation as well as allowing for more independence when using utensils at mealtime or grasping objects like crayons during playtime activities.
A number of different restraint options are available depending on the child’s needs and the caregiver’s preferences. Generally speaking, restraint options fall into two categories: stationary versus mobile.
Stationary armrests are permanently attached to the chair frame and do not move up or down. Mobile armrests can be adjusted for height or removed altogether if desired. These options provide greater flexibility in use as well as allowing for more space between arms when needed (such as during feeding). We offer both stationary and mobile armrest options for our chairs. Please see the product list below to determine which one best suits your needs.
