Patient Restraints and Restraint Alternatives: Peek-A-Boo Mitts (Adult Medical Mitts)

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.

Both Posey Peek-A-Boo® Mitts on this page feature the following:

  • Inspection flap that allows you to check your patient’s hand without removing the mitt
  • Hook-and-loop fastener (press to apply, peel to release)
