I have read and heard other people talk about straps attached to the stirrups. They are referring to heel stirrups and the straps go over the ankles. Has any one really ever been strapped into those stirrups?
I've only been in heel stirrups, and therefore never strapped into them. Don't see how this would even be possible. The idea of the knee rest stirrups and being strapped into them is interesting from a fantasy perspective, but not something I'd want to experience at a real exam.
I would think the only time they would use straps would be in a surgical situation or possibly a childbirth.
Drsade, that sounds like a WONDERFUL idea. Do you have some kind of fittings / tie points on your exam table that the straps fasten to? Any chance of posting pictures of your setup?
On play exams we always use the straps, because it adds to the bdsm-feeling of the session. Love them!
I had an ultrasound once which was done in knee stirrups. They had what appeared to be straps on them but they were velcroed in the back. They weren't used on me but I could see where they'd be handy if a patient had trouble keeping her legs in position.
I've used both the stirrup straps and the knee crutches with the straps in my play exam adventures. Following the pelvic, the patient (upon prior agreement, of course) is told she needs to be monitored while experiencing orgasm, and the ankles are strapped into the stirrups while her wrists are strapped to the sides of the table, and usually one is pulled across the stomach and shoulders. And they are actually a good idea as there are usually multiple orgasms involved.
my doc only has heel stirrups on the table. It would be interesting to be strapped down.
That would be so hot to be strapped in. I am considering purchasing some sort of device for my table at home for my play exams.
I once took my wife to see a wonderful "doc" in Oregon who had several sets of stirrups, slings and knee crutches for his table. The knee crutches had straps and added a lot to the session for my wife. My table at home has the obstetrical knee rests and they have restraining straps too. How else can you keep your "patient" still? ;)
straps on stirrups would definitely be an interesting situation.
I regularly use knee rests with straps to tie my partner: it is really hot!!
I agree with you.
In Europe are more used knee rests and yes I do find them more "interesting" ... :)
American doctors seem to almost always use exam tables with heel stirrups and not knee rests, and those don't have any kind of straps like the knee rests can. They do have knee rest tables for surgical and procedural uses, but generally not for regular exams. That being said, I've never experienced them at a doctor, but have in other settings :)
And they're wonderful :D
sorry to say no.... never been strapped, but soooo wish that i had been!
would think if it was going to be an issue that the knee support stirrups with straps would be a better option. Both for real and play exams ; )
