Hogtie Position

Forensics A highly restrictive position—handcuffed wrists are tethered to restrained ankles, and legs are flexed back so that the person is bent backwards; hog-tying is used to restrain a violent person, but, because it carries an increased risk of breathing/airway problems, the hogtied person must immediately be placed on the right side, until transfer to hospital restraints can be effected
