Restraint Chair: Not for Prisoners but...

The Devil's Chair | The Progressive

After reading this article, please go to my other blog at for a post that will deal by the end of Jan 4th with how they used a chair like this on me at Connecticut's Manchester Hospital in the general psychiatric unit. I was not a forensic patient, I committed no crime, never have. I was simply there because of a diagnosis of schizophrenia. For the life of me I do not know, and frankly am horrified to so much as speculate, where they obtained such a chair; no one I talked to since who has worked in a psych unit has ever seen such a contraption anywhere on a regular psych service unit...But as I said, I am working on a post dealing with this, and it should be up by the end of tonight.
