Unusual device used to keep wriggly babies still during X-rays leaves Twitter users in hysterics

Daily Mail

Everyone knows keeping a toddler still can be next to impossible – so how do you stop them from moving during an X-ray?

It turns out that doctors can use a strange looking contraption called a Pigg-O-Stat to keep control of wriggly little ones. 

And a viral tweet of adorable youngsters being squished into the clear tube, which appears to be attached to a table has left Twitter users unable to ‘stop laughing’, after it was shared on Twitter by a user from Canada.

Three pictures show adorable youngsters inside the Pigg-O-Stat, which has been produced for the medical field since the 1960s, and originates in the US.

The ‘pediatric immobilizer’ is not routinely used by the NHS any longer.
