>The soft immobilization is there to remind the patient to hold still.

Yes, but the question remains... if it is important for the patient to hold
still (because of possible injury) then what are you going to do when
something beyond the patients control happens?

If it really is not a risk, then what is the reason for soft immobilization?
If it is a risk, then why perform soft immobilization, which is really a
misnomer as there is no immobilization taking place.
