New Buckle Guards aim to better secure patients in stretchers
Restricting access to seat belt release mechanisms, the device mitigates patient tampering during transport
The Buckle Guard Belt Buckle Cover slides over the restraint buckle and hides the release mechanism while the buckle is secure. No tools are required to access the release mechanism, which is covered with a, FDA approved child safety cap.
The Buckle Guard Belt Buckle Cover weighs two pounds and fits buckles up to two inches wide and 1 1/8 inches high.
