Oh yeah, we see no long-term psychological effects that the Papoose Board might bring in the long run...

I like how a lot of people ignored where it said "patient" and just assumed this was for torture or punishment.

Aluciel: You never want to hold someone down during a seizure. They do it in movies but that`s the exact opposite of what you should do.

I can say from experience that while this may be a way to secure a frightened child, it sure as hell doesn`t do anything to make them less frightened. They put me on one of these while putting stitches in my head because I kept trying to kick and bite the doctors.

Nothing like being strapped to a table while some stranger comes at you with a needle to the face.

My parents used to request something similar to use on me when I would get shots. I am terrified of needles and it was pretty much the only way they could get me to hold still.

for medical purposes, as well as "security" (ie torture to the rest the world) purposes

To be honest never heard or seen such a device till now, and the above statement is my first impression. The US disregards international treaties left, right and center. What`s to stop them from putting child-soldiers on trial? Oh, wait they are, reference to Omar Kader, a 14 year old kid captured in Afghanistan, and held as an adult, which is in direct violation of the treaties signed, including the US, on protecting and rehabilitating such children.

But I guess in America, it doesn`t count if their Muslim.

My apologies for the rant, but this thing is wrong.

I`ve known some very hard to control autistic children. Sometimes immobilizing them till they calm down really is the best answer. But having said that, this is still pretty darn creepy.

_DIY crucifixion kit_

Is your child claiming to be the King of the Jews? God incarnate? Save time and money on pointless trials and legal costs by crucifying him at home!
Adjustable, fits any size of blasphemous child. Head strap to secure crown of thorns (crown of thorns not included). All self contained and ready to lift onto a tree.

when I was little, I had lots of teeth taken out, and this was before they banned putting people to sleep. the second time I went to have one removed, I panicked and tried to flee, but the dentist, his nurse and my mum all held me down (I was screaming and crying at this point) and injected me with aneasthetic until I fell asleep. That poo was scary enough.

...all for a tooth!

Native Americans did some things that would be frowned upon by todays politically correct soccer moms and Nascar dads. Like when a baby cried the mother would cover the mouth and pinch the nose off. This would teach baby not to cry and give away their position.

When I was 4 I hit my head on a kitchen cabinet door and needed stitches to the crown of my head. In the Er I was told to stay still or they`d strap me down like this kid. I decided it was best just to lay still until they were done, I was awake the whole time and luckily the doctor performed the stitching without shaving part of my head.

At age 8 I needed stitches to my knee, I was calm enough that time that I actually sat up and watched in amazement at the Dr. stitching up my knee.

For several years after that I wanted to be a doctor. Until I seen a F-15 takeoff from the St.Louis McDonnell-Douglas factory and literally take off straight up, At the end of the runway, And quickly disappear into the sky high above.

My brother was born with brain damage and spent the first couple of years of his life getting his head poked and prodded. Consequently he has since had a phobia of anyone messing with his head for any reason. Since he was also epileptic, sedation was a last-resort option because it could interact with his seizure meds. Strapping him down to a papoose board was the only way to keep him still enough for things like dental checkups until he was well into his teens, and even then he still had to have several adults more or less sitting on him while he was strapped down to have a chance of getting his teeth cleaned.

This is for use during medical procedures. I`m guessing it`s mainly used with children who have serious behavior problems and/or developmental disabilities. I`ve worked with autistic kids in a residential setting who probably needed to be restrained for any kind of medical procedure- this is certainly a lot safer than sedation.
