In order to enhance the security of air travel and to help manage illegal immigration, the Department of Homeland Security has solicited a proposal from a Canadian security company to develop a passenger stun bracelet. Like the pain collars featured in the classic Star Trek episode The Gamesters of Triskelion, Lamperd Less Lethal's electro-muscular disruption (EMD) bracelet is intended to incapacitate wearers on remote command.
The patent details "[a] method of providing air travel security for passengers travelling via an aircraft comprises situating a remotely activatable electric shock device on each of the passengers in position to deliver a disabling electrical shock when activated."
"By further equipping the bracelet with EMD technology, the bracelets will allow crew members, using radio frequency transmitters, to quickly and effective subdue hijackers," the video explains. "The electro-muscular disruption signal overrides the attacker's central nervous system and will render even the most elite and aggressive terrorist completely immobile for several minutes."

The electrical shock from a police Taser stun gun could cause cardiac arrest, a Vancouver heart surgeon told a Taser inquiry Tuesday.
There has to be underlying heart disease or other contributing factors, such as lack of oxygen due to asphyxia or massive blood loss or severe metabolic abnormalities such as acidosis or abnormal potassium levels, Janusz said.

Lets see what happens. Im not convinced that some people wont think its a great idea. And if they do, I hope their ankle stun bracelet accidentally gets stuck in the on position while in the middle of an ocean somewhere, hours from the nearest airport.

For example, "The shock collar will incapacitate hijackers"
Excuse me, but do they think someone would willingly allow a shock collar to be put on them, only to then try and hijack the airplane afterwards?
The people coming up with these solutions are the ones that need some shock therapy ..
