The challenge

Profile bed hand railThis young girl has poor mobility and tends to fall out of bed. She also needed something to steady her to help her get off the bed into a wheelchair.

Steel rails were fitted and the bed suitably reinforced to give high lateral stiffness. A Velcro-secured cover was made for the outer rail to meet maximum gap recommendations whilst avoiding a closed in feeling and to facilitating bed making.

The girl can now move around in bed by pulling on the rail, is secure from falling out and can use the outer rail to get off the bed and on to her wheelchair.
