A lady with severe night-time epilepsy needed a self-operated ‘cot side’ to her bed to prevent her falling out during epileptic attacks, while still being able to get out of bed independently. A padded, hinged restraint with a latch for closure was made. Two lugs, fitting closely below the bed frame, prevent over – turning when closed. When open, the client can climb into, or out of, bed.
The client is able to continue independent living, whilst not falling out of bed and injuring herself during an epileptic episode.
