LIMB LOCK™ Arm Shocker
WHAT IS THE LIMB LOCK™ ARM SHOCKER?
The LimbLock™ training device is designed to simulate an injury to the dominant arm of a trainee during a reality based training scenario or during an ecological dynamics approach such as the Setcan® Gunsparring™ Course.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The LimbLock™ can be activated in 2 ways:
- The instructor can use a remote key fob to activate and deactivate the system whenever they desire. This is excellent for when the device is used in conjunction with non-lethal training ammunition.
- The device can be connected to the StressVest® System. When the StressVest® is activated by a role player shooting an eye safe laser at the vest, the LimbLock™ will immediately activate, forcing the student to have to use their training firearm with their non-dominant hand.
CAN THE LIMB LOCK™ BE USED ON A LIVE RANGE?
No. The dangers of using this type of product with live fire weapons far outweighs the potential training benefit of use on a range. For this reason, the LimbLock™ should be prohibited for use on any live fire range.
HOW IS THE LIMB LOCK™ DIFFERENT FROM OTHER INJURY SIMULATION SYSTEMS?
The patented LimbLock™ system does not use electric shock to lock the limb of the student. In contrast, it uses electric shock to force the student lock their limb in a position so a shock will NOT be delivered. This limb locked position is designed to make it impossible to use the training firearm effectively. If the student tries to extend their arm from the position they have locked it in, the shocks will start activating again until they move it back into the locked position.
At it’s simplest level, the LimbLock™ stops delivering localized electric shocks when the arm is held in a bent, locked position and other products use electrical impulses continuously to force and keep the arm in a position where it can’t be effectively used.
