Medical restraint cuff

A medical restraint cuff is a device used to control an individual through automatically or remotely triggered drugs or chemical inhibitors.

Description[edit | edit source]

A medical restraint cuff is generally worn on an ankle or upper arm and is secured so the wearer cannot remove it. It can be set to inject chemical inhibitors or sedate a restrained individual upon receiving a command signal from another individual, if the restrained individual leaves a specified area, or if use of an implanted device is detected.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

Events[edit | edit source]

A medical restraint cuff is used on Clarissa Mao to inhibit the use of the Endocrine Enhancement Implant she used in attacking the crew of the Rocinante.[2]

A chemical inhibitor medical cuff is again used on Clarissa while serving her sentence in a UN Penitentiary in order to control her ability to use her implanted body modifications.[3]
