The challenge

Stick for cot side bedAnne needed to maintain a sitting position whilst carers attended to her personal care. The cot sides on her bed meant that standard bed sticks were not suitable

A tubular bed stick was constructed which attaches to the metal bed frame by means of a bolted “U” bracket and welded stub pipe. The bracket can be positioned anywhere along the bed and the stick height can be adjusted by pin/clip fixings.

Anne can sit comfortably in her bed whilst her carers attend to her needs.
