Welcome to The Truth About Prone Restraint!
The truth about prone restraint is for the agencies, facilities, schools, staff, clients and youth who believe that prone restraint when done correctly is more therapeutic and safer than supine or other floor restraint methods.
This site advocates for the use of the least restrictive restraint techniques to be used. If you can use positive supports, redirection, standing or seated holds to maintain a safe environment, we are in full support of doing so. The purpose of this site is not to discourage the use of less restrictive yet effective means of intervention. The purpose is to inform the public that the alternatives being offered by the advocate community -- supine restraint -- is not a substitute or viable solution as supine restraint is not as safe as prone restraint.
