Spreader bars are used to restrain an individual in a unique way. The wearer of a spreader bar is not only restrained, their extremities are fastened to the spreader bar in such a way that arms or legs are in fixed positions away from each other. Spreader bars are used in BDSM practices to deprive the wearer complete range of motion of their arms or legs. Fetish bondage spreader bars make walking extremely awkward. Use of the hands is also awkward, although the individual can pick things up for instance, they have no ability to bend their arms to perform simple tasks such as feeding themselves or scratching an itch.
