In extremely rare circumstances an individual may require a higher level of physical intervention than would normally be expected.  This may be as a result of unique impact factors from enhanced physical capability to specific conditions that may affect staff ability to manage a situation.  In these cases PAMOVA Cymru will work with an organisation to establish reduction strategies and equip staff to use advanced safe holding techniques in the short term.  These skills will always be needs specific and linked to individuals and should not be used as a standard method of managing challenging behaviour.
