infernal device


 

Curaisse

 

This German device with a French name was formed from a breastplate of armor surrounded by three or four locking metal bands. A prisoner would be locked tightly into the bands with his arms straight at his side. The Cuirasse prevented all but the most basic of movements and sitting was near impossible.
