Stun cuff restrains prisoners without lethal force
Band-It electronic incapacitation device (EID) assists law enforcement personnel in controlling prisoners and inmates without the threat of lethal force. Universal sleeve placed on prisoner’s arm or leg stuns with a remotely activated electrical impulse that disperses over the person’s body at a predetermined pulse-rate frequency, temporarily incapacitating his or her muscles and allowing security officers to contain the subject. Works up to 150 ft. away. Powered by a nickel metal hydride (NiMH) rechargeable battery pack, unit sounds an alarm warning the prisoner to comply before activation is necessary. Also contains a mechanical tether cord that is fixed in place while the prisoner is seated. If the person tries to flee, cord detaches from the unit and Band-It is activated automatically. Unit can be worn in eight places on the body and is effective both over and under clothing. Applicable for nationwide local, county, state and federal law enforcement agencies. Used by the Federal Bureau of Prisons and the U.S. Marshals. Stinger Systems Inc., Tampa, Fla.
