  • "will not even take my children to a dentist where they will be restrained."

    Well you better hope that you find an amazing dentist or just don't take your child to the dentist at all... Most kids do need to be restrained at some point especially during a dental visit where they need major work done.

    My son has had to be restrained a couple of times in a papoose wrap (isn't as horrible as that picture depicts) 2 of the 3 times was because he required stitches and was able to escape from the sheets they had him wrapped in with 4 nurses plus me and my father holding him down. The other time was his first cleaning at his dentist appointment, it scared him to the point he freaked out and they couldn't get anything done but it needed to be done.

  • Heck no that is wrong on so many levels. You might as well tie them to a chair

  • What is this for?

    It consists of Plexiglas materials with two vertical body supports at right angles and four sets
    of straps to restrain moving parts of the body. A base made of one-inch thick plywood for durability
    and stability. Cassette holders and film adjuster provided to fit different size film .

    * Accepts 6-weeks old infants to children 4 years of age.


    * Eliminates the need for multiple accessories/attachments that one finds in other devices, which can be

    either, misplace or broken thus rendering the device UN utilized.

  • Why would you need to retrain a 6 week old?
