Pigg O Stat pediatric immobilizer.
I can't imagine how else kids could be successfully X-rayed, let alone photographed.
Now for us adults, we just get arranged bodily via tech and told to 'hold it'. I'm having an issue with my foot. The X-ray tech twisted my position to get a flat shot of [left foot-left side] arch and instep while I was to prop torso off table with my arms.
She laughed when I quipped "...been such a long time since I posed this way." with a cheesy grin.
Naturally, I've used that one-liner before.
...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...

i'm an X-ray tech. this device is so you can get a chest X-ray of a baby or very young child. he/she looks very calm because they are. i have some fall asleep when in a pig-o-stat. the only thing that is cruel about this is they have to be crying when you take the X-ray. so you pinch their thigh. they cry and then take a large breath and then cry some more. the X-ray is taken during the breath so the lungs are expanded.
