The challenge

Bespoke drop-down bed lever 1 Bespoke drop-down bed lever 2The client has chronic pain, and an above knee amputation, and her medication causes drowsiness. To relieve pain, she sits on the bed edge, often falling when she dozes. She needs support when sitting there, whilst remaining independent in transfers.

A drop-down bed lever, allowing access on/off the bed when in the lowered position was made. When raised, the mushroom top allowed her to doze safely, without over-balancing. She was also able to use this to pull herself up from lying. The client can transfer to and from her bed and is safe in bed.
