Patient Restraints and Restraint Alternatives: Adult Mitts


MEDICAL Mitts for adult patients

Posey® Mitts are used to help protect patients who are prone to disrupting medical treatment or to self-harm. A mitt hinders picking and tube pulling. It is considered to be a less restrictive device that should be considered and tried before more restrictive methods are used.

Posey Mitts offer professional caregivers a range of features and functionality. All Posey Mitts are padded, use a hook-and-loop fastener, and fit either hand.

These medical mitts for adult patients are organized according to whether or not they provide an inspection flap for quick access to the patient’s hand, as shown below.

Not sure which Posey Mitt style to select?

Peek-A-Boo® Mitts: These medical mitts feature an inspection flap that allows you to check your patient’s hand without removing the mitt. Peek-A-Boo Mitts for adults use fiber-filled padding on one or both sides of the mitt. A single-side mesh option offers extra breathability and a full view of the patient’s hand at all times. A strap-compatible option helps prevent the patient from removing the mitt. (Peek-A-Boo Mitts are our most popular type of mitt.)

Closed Mitts: These medical mitts do not have an inspection flap. Choices include whether the padding is used on one or both sides of the mitt, the type of padding fill, the type of mitt material, the use of mesh, the use of finger separators, and strap compatibility.
