The challenge

image The client needs to pull herself up in bed and lower herself onto her wheelchair on either side of the bed, using straps. She has a floor mounted ‘A’ frame mounted overhead beam but it is too short and takes up too much bedroom space. A welded overhead beam was fabricated and fixed to a sturdy ceiling beam (provided by others). The beam was load tested.
