Abstract The accumulating empirical evidence demonstrates that restrictive devices can be removed without negative consequences. Most importantly, use of nonrestrictive measures has been correlated with positive patient outcomes and represents care that is dignified and safe for confused elders. Most of these nonrestrictive approaches promote mobility and functional recovery; however, testing of individual interventions is needed to further the science. As the research regarding restrictive devices has been translated into professional guidelines and regulatory standards, the prevalence of usage has declined dramatically. New institutional models of care discouraging routine use of restrictive devices also will foster innovative solutions to clinical problems associated with dementia.
