The ERB - Emergency Response Belt

The ERB has been medically reviewed for use by leading UK medical experts and has been used by a number of UK Police Services and Healthcare Trusts as a way of controlling violent and aggressive subjects safely whist reducing the risk to the subject and also to staff.

In the USA it has been used nationally since 1989 and has gained court and administrative acceptance faster than any other soft styled restraining device in history and is used in virtually every profession that must control and move/transport violent subjects.
