The team at Norix recognized the potential hazard and has developed a unique solution: The removable restraint ring.
The concept is simple and effective. As an option for our industry-leading Attenda series of seclusion room furniture, the removable restraint rings offer the flexibility to be anchored or removed quickly.
Removal of the restraint ring requires a key. Once it is removed, the bolt and spacer together are used to fill the gap once occupied by the restraint ring eliminating a potential ligature point.
The removal of the restraint rings is a definite step-up in safety, but the often overlooked benefit is a more humanized environment.
The mere presence of restraint rings can have the potential to increase anxiety and stress in a resident. With the ability to remove them, staff now can foster a calmer setting when possible.
