Versatile patient restraint system

, : Versatile patient restraint system. Official Gazette of the United States Patent & Trademark Office Patents 1228(3), Nov 16

A versatile patient support and restraint system is provided. It includes a couch (14) having a top surface (22) for supporting a patient being examined within an examination region (12). Two substantially parallel grooves (20) are formed along a longitudinal direction in the top surface (22) of the couch (14) on opposite sides thereof. Two removable tracks (30) extending in a longitudinal direction are removably seated in the grooves (20). Adjustable restraint straps for securing the patient to the couch (14) are also provided. The adjustable restraint straps include pins attached to opposing ends of the adjustable restraint straps. The pins selectively engage the two removable tracks (30) thereby selectively securing opposing ends of the adjustable restraint straps to opposite sides of the top surface (22) of the couch (14).
