Bed lever

The challenge

Bed LeverThe client needs to use a bed lever to transfer from her bed to a wheelchair. As the bed is of the elevating type, the normal bed lever that fits under the mattress without any fixings, moves about when the bed is elevated.

The solution was to fix the ‘handle’ portion of the bed lever to the bed frame by means of a pair of clamps. Vee blocks were used to ensure the bed lever was held firmly. The part that normally goes under the mattress was discarded. The bed lever makes it much easier for the client to transfer to her wheelchair.
