Body-Worn Electric Shock Equipment. May 2015.

Poster submitted to the 8th European Symposium on Non-Lethal Weapons, Ettlingen, Germany. The poster addresses concerns about their use, providing recommendations to states.

Body-worn electric shock equipment, often referred to as stun cuffs, stun sleeves or stun belts, are designed to deliver an electric shock to the wearer when activated by remote control. They are used to enforce compliance through the fear of pain, or, if activated, to enforce compliance through pain. They are advertised for use in courtroom settings, for prisoner transfers, and on work details.
