Circumstraint for fast immobilization of newborns (4 to 16 lbs.) for use during circumcision, transfusion, infusion, scalp IV, catheterization, blood exchanges, minor surgery, X-ray, and any other neonatal medical procedures that require infant immobilization. The new Olympic Circumstraint board is now even more versatile and functional
than the popular model purchased by over 11,000 hospitals throughout the
world. Circumstraint is now more compact so it fits inside a standard
incubator or bassinet.
In less than 30 seconds, a nurse can immobilize the infant
securely in the correct position. The Circumstraint immobilizer
works on a proven principle of positive 4-point restraint with soft wide
VELCRO® brand fastener straps that securely encircle the infant's elbows and knees. The infant is held safely and securely
without any danger of falls or moves. Circumstraint offers a comfortable contoured shape
that positions the infant's hips in an elevated manner.
The Circumstraint board comes complete with four adjustable hook-and-loop straps for securing arms and legs.
Circumstraint dimensions: 25 1/4 inches x 13 inches x 3 1/2 inches. Weight is less than two pounds. Circumstraint also has a hole for hanging in the OR or nursery. Circumstraint fits infants from 4 to 16 pounds. The straps slide longitudinally in slots to adapt to infant length. Circumstraint is made of dense, non-absorbent plastic and wipes clean with any liquid disinfectant.
More About Circumstraint:
The Olympic Circumstraint device was introduced in 1959 and
has been purchased by over 11,000 hospitals throughout the
world. Circumstraint is designed for minor
surgery, blood exchanges, catheterization, transfusions or
infusions (including scalp IV’s), or whenever immobilization is
required for a neonatal procedure. Circumstraint is radiolucent so it also works very well for infant x-rays. The
Circumstraint board’s comfortable contoured shape positions the
infant with their hips elevated, effectively presenting the genitalia for the
circumcision procedure. The platform between the infant’s legs
provides support for a circumcision clamp. Without extraneous
pins, clamps or towels, the device snugly and securely
immobilizes the infant with the entire torso visible. The device maintains the high standards of nursery asepsis
with minimum effort.
